I've watched Durrells in Corfu on PBS & enjoyed the story of this quirky family. Thought some of the antics were a bit over the top, the writer's sense of humor. Well the special this week - after the final series show - They were real people!!! The son who loved animals became the adult naturalist who changed the way zoo's operate for the betterment of animal care. Another son - a famous author. Several articles on the web.
Other shows based on real people include Mrs Wilson, X company - there was a USA/Canada WW2 organization that trained & operated spies in Europe. etc. More web stories if you're interested.
Loved the Durrells in Corfu. I love that quirky type of book, movie, show, etc. Gerald Durrell wrote a trilogy of his family starting with "My Family and Other Animals." I really felt so bad for Mrs.Wilson. It is so nice her granddaughter got to play her on the PBS series. Great doggie pictures, as usual. Thanks for all the time you put in here.
