    Whilst on a brief break from work, I chanced upon a repeat of the British sitcom "Three Up, Two Down."

    One of the characters is zookeeper, and the episode I saw contained a (rather grotty!) elephant enclosure. As it didn't say in the credits, what is the zoo that appears?

    I believe the zoo featured was the old Chessington zoo

    is that the one where in one episode the keeper had a plate of buns on the table which one of the other characters started to eat, and then the keeper said he collected them out of the enclosure of the rhino who had the trots?

    That's the only scene I remember from the whole series! :D

    No, definitely had an elephant in it though, and the enclosure was shocking to put it mildly! Think this episode was from 1985, so first series(?)

    If it's Chessington, when did it change to "World of Adventures?"
