In 1969 two young Australians Anthony Bourke and John Rendall visited Harrods in London and became enchanted with a young Lion cub, acting on impulse and with no previous Lion experience they immediately decided to buy him. They took possession of Christian some weeks later and moved him into their flat which had a basement under a shop, this was to become the lions home.

Christian soon grew both in size and popularity and his boisterousness caused quite a stir in the antique shop he called home. But all good things must end and keeping a growing lion in the centre of London became untenable. Relief was at hand when George Adamson agreed to help Christian adapt to his new found home in Kenya and the relocation began.

In 2008, a clip of the reunion with Christian was posted on YouTube and became an internet sensation. Overnight people wanted to know more about what lay behind this clip.
