The widow of Gerald Durrell hopes an ITV drama, based on her late husband’s childhood, will boost visitor numbers at the Trinity wildlife park.

Lee Durrell hopes the new 6-part series, ‘The Durrells,’ will be a hit with viewers and bring more tourists to the island.

The first episode airs on ITV on Sunday.

Our reporter, Gary Burgess, went behind the scenes in Corfu and spent time with Milo Parker, who plays the young ‘Gerry.’
