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 among 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 among our closest relatives.

Produced by the National Geographic Society in association with Wolper Productions Inc
