My Family and other Animals archiveCorfu, 1935. Leave the grey skies of England behind and enjoy this new adaptation of a much-loved book that has never lost its appeal from generation to generation. Gerald Durrell looks back at his unconventional upbringing on the sun-soaked island of Corfu with his eccentric family in a landscape rich in natural and cultural life. Enjoying a life of freedom and adventure, Gerald is intrepid in his pursuit of an extraordinary array of exotic animals and reptiles that lead to his life-long love of the natural world. The wry observations of a curious young boy do not stop at the animal kingdom, but also offer a richly comic view of the hilarious encounters of his bohemian family, their friends and the local population.
