What do we have in common with mountain gorillas and chimpanzees? How does our own society compare with that of a troop of baboons? Can watching rhesus monkeys help solve some of our own family problems?
DESMOND MORRIS and JANE VAN LAWICK-GOODALL are amongst the contributors to this programme, which draws the parallels that exist between our own behaviour and that of other primates. Filmed in Japan, the USA and Africa, it shows recent fascinating discoveries made by scientists working amongst our closest relatives.

A series of five widely differing ballets.
BIRGIT CULLBERG 'S latest ballet for Swedish Television uses electronic techniques which seem to project the choreography into the drawings of imaginary prisons by the 18th-century Italian artist Piranesi. She describes the theme as a struggle for freedom. The music is BARTOK'S Music for Strings, Percussion and Celeste.
The series comes from the Royal College of Art, London, where PROFESSOR STUART HOOD and students talk to BIRGIT CULLBERG and MANS REUTERSWARD.
