Animal Programmes on TV



Which animal programmes are TV?

This is by no means an extensive list, but here are a range of animal programmes on TV this week to get stuck into.  Where the programme is on every night, I've put that, because otherwise the list would go on and on and on...!  Please note that programmes are subject to change and the list tends to start from Sunday lunch time.   

Keep well and keep safe!
