This fascinating story has been made into a TV programme called "The Lion Cub From Harrods", shown on Channel Five a few years ago. I'm sure I have a DVD recording of it.

The owners of the lion cub also had an early dual standard colour TV, pictured above, which I couldn't help noticing in the programme. I didn't notice exactly which model it was, but just casually wondered. That photo has now answered the question, so thanks for posting it. I really only noted the presence of the colour TV as a sign of how fabulously rich the owners must have been. Back then, both the TV and the lion must have each cost around 3 months' wages for the average person - perhaps the equivalent of £4000 today. How times have changed!
