Bristol-based factual producer Icon Films is expanding on its portfolio of history storytelling with a BBC4 commission, The Born Free Legacy. The one-off, one-hour historical documentary celebrates the 50th anniversary of the publication of Joy Adamson’s book, which chronicled Adamson and her husband George raising an orphaned lion to adulthood and releasing her into the wild. The BBC4 one-off will look at the legacy of the Adamsons’ work, which changed the public’s perception of wildlife and inspired a conservationist movement.
