A film portrait of a working retirement.
The Most Rev. Archbishop Lord Fisher of Lambeth, Archbishop of Canterbury from 1945-1961 who is now living more or less quietly in a Dorset village, and today celebrates his eightieth birthday talks to Kenneth Hudson.

"I can imagine Sir Hugh Greene chuckling all round the corridors of Television Centre at the title 'Primates are Human'." (Daily Sketch)
"Lord Fisher, always outspoken, has not changed. And it was this which made the programme a delightful cameo of the week." (Daily Mirror)
"This human and entertaining portrait..." (The Guardian)
"The camera sometimes can make a point so much more vividly than words.... These scenes from a country rectory were quite endearing." (The Times)
