Hercules the Human Bear

In 1976, Andy and Maggie Robin bought a grizzly bear cub from a zoo in Aviemore. Little did they know at the time, Hercules, the tiny bear cub, would become the world’s most famous bear and make them a fortune in the process. Featuring interviews with the couple, together with extraordinary home-movie footage, this is the story of what it was like to live under the same roof as one of the most dangerous land mammals. By turns hilarious and heart-rending, the film takes the viewer on a roller coaster journey through key periods of Hercules’ life.
