Clip 4:44 In 1969 a young Australian, John Rendall and his friend Ace Bourke, bought a small lion cub from Harrods pet department. As Christian grew, John and Ace soon realized, they had to make a choice. A chance encounter with Bill Travers and Virginia McKenna led to a new life for Christian. He came to live in a huge enclosure and to sleep in a caravan at their Surrey home. Then in 1971 he was flown to Kenya, his ancestral home, and returned to the wild by lion-man George Adamson. Nine months later in 1972, John and Ace returned to Kora in Kenya. This clip is of their reunion at that time.
