Nyree Dawn Porter,
Like others I have seen the re-runs of the "The Zoo Gang" on ITV4. I remember the series the first time round, but I am lead to believe that it has never been repeated until now because of who owns the rights to the series. To date, the sad thing is, only one member of the zoo gang is alive today (Barry Morse). I truly loved the series, the warmth that emulates while watching it, yes, it has that 70's kitch feel, but that what gives it it's charm, it's innocent safe detective fun, the smell of money, the glamour, the wide flares and neck-o-chiffs. It was a sad situation that only six were ever produced, maybe it was a good thing?, as unlike other TV programs made around this time of 72/73 this one remains a bit exclusive, more so as to the stars that played the leading roles.
