Our Zoo: Episode 6
6/6 Can the Mottersheads convince a visiting inspector to overturn the council ban on the zoo?
First broadcast 8 October 2014
The family’s last chance is to convince a visiting inspector from the Ministry of Health to
overturn the council ban on a zoo at Oakfield. But when the nets of the aviary are
slashed, George begins to lose his grip on the case – and his self-control. Lizzie is
concerned he might throw their last chance away so reaches out for legal help, which
comes at a cost.
The high emotion of the hearing sees a hidden truth tumbling out for
Reverend Webb, which helps tip the balance. An inspection of the zoo is held but the
final decision could take weeks – can the family hang on and is there life after Oakfield?
