This BBC series presented stories about real-life international zoo vet David Taylor (called Donald Turner in the series and played by Rob Heyland) from his early days as a newly-qualified vet in the 1950s to his international standing in the 1970s.

Each series of the programme was set in a different decade.

One by One came from the producers of All Creatures Great and Small and followed a similar formula: Crusty old boss, kindly old gran, grandpa’s wintergreen whippet lotion to the rescue . . .
