In the 1970s the Causeway Safari Park in north Antrim was one of Northern Ireland’s most popular tourist attractions. But for the couple that created the park, it was both a magical family home and a difficult business venture. This documentary recalls happy memories from the park’s heyday and tells the poignant, inside story of a family’s struggle to keep it open during the darkest days of the Troubles.
