This offbeat Sunday-evening series from Anglia Television, shot on location in Africa, mixed fantasy with a wildlife conservation message in an attempt to educate viewers.

Izeena (Fenella Fielding) was reputedly 200-years-old and lived in her magic treehouse in a world of animal friends, including Charlie and Charlotte Chimp, Goodsense Gibbon, Huggable Potto.

The animals shared their secrets and adventures with Izeena who could talk with them Dr Dolittle-style.

Fenella Fielding did not have the luxury of visiting the exotic locations in the filmed sequences.

She was studio-bound and looked at the animals through her telescope from her treehouse.
