Julia goes into the jungle to learn about Orangutans from a Jane Goodall-like professor who studies them in their natural habitats. The show is interesting if you want to learn about Orangutans.
Then Julia goes in search of an adult male orangutan. These older males live alone and grow very large. She meets a 400 lb male who takes a liking to her. She goes up to him for a little chat, but he grabs her and doesn't want to let go. He doesn't want to hurt her. He just wants to keep her. It's like King Kong without the biplanes and special effects.
The screen goes blank for a moment, and Julia is free. We don't see what the crew did to Kong, but the narrator says he was shot with a tranquilizer gun. Kong-lovers know "Twas beauty downed the beast."
