Children get to feed the elephants at Dublin Zoo.

The film shows visitors to Dublin Zoo getting up close 36 year old Sarah the Elephant who appears quite comfortable with human company. Children even get the chance to feed Sarah before she performs some tricks on a podium. 

This report was broadcast on an episode of 'Broadsheet' on 3 July 1962. The film here is mute.

‘Broadsheet’ was a magazine programme which went out on weekday evenings during the 1960s.
