Paul O Grady’s Great Elephant Adventure ITV

This two-part series accompanies the late Paul O’Grady on a journey through Thailand and Laos, honouring the efforts of elephant conservation centre’s dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating, and safeguarding these magnificent yet vulnerable creatures. During his travels, Paul ventures beyond the sanctuaries to immerse himself in the vibrant local culture, exploring colourful markets, temples and indulging in the diverse local cuisine.

Helena Vagnolini who worked on both episodes said “It was an absolute pleasure to work on this show, beautiful locations, fun travel,  and a really good insight into elephant welfare. Paul’s love for these animals is evident and he brought so much warmth and humour to sometimes difficult subjects. Perhaps from many years of working in live TV, Paul never liked to redo a take or re ask a question, which required some problem solving in the edit, but we were never short of great material from all the 2 legged and 4 legged contributors”.

This is a truly special documentary, airing Sunday 31st March on ITV.
