BBC adaptation of Gerald Durrell's bestselling autobiography, telling the story of the naturalist's childhood years spent on the island of Corfu. Escaping the dreary weather of 1930s England, the eccentric Durrell family uproots and ships itself off to the sun drenched Greek island of Corfu. With the help of larger-than-life local taxi-driver Spiro (Omid Djalili), the family, headed by Mother (Imelda Staunton), move to a succession of different, fantastically-coloured villas dotted across the landscape. While his sister Margo (Tamzin Merchant) fights off the advances of would-be suitors, his gun crazy brother Leslie (Russell Tovey blasts the island's bird life to smithereens and the overbearingly intellectual Larry (Matthew Goode) invites a stream of artistic types to stay, young Gerald explores the glorious scenery and the wildlife it has to offer. Watching one sort of the animal kingdom in their natural habitat allows Gerald to learn more incisively about the habits of an altogether different group: his own family.

Michael Bradford on
The above trailer is for the play performed at York Theatre Royal, York, England in 2011, NOT the BBC television film released in 2005, which this DVD contains. So the producer and actors that appear in the trailer are not the ones in the film. So the trailer is not relevant to this DVD.
I haven't seen the play, so I can't comment on it, but apparently it did not fair well with the critics. But I HAVE seen the film and it is a delight, well produced and with fine acting. So I highly recommend it.

A magical story which uplifts the spirit and brings hope to those who can imagine. A Dvd to watch over and over and to share. The best gift I have given myself in years!
Glenn A McTear on
Very enjoyable story and just as good as the current TV series. Well acted and the cast are very entertaining and the the locations are stunning.
