Storyline

More than 20 years ago, Dr. Jane Goodall, now 75, decided to give up her career as a primatologist, as well as her private life, in order to devote all her energy to saving our endangered planet. Since then she's been spending 300 days a year scouring the globe on her mission to spread hope for future generations. She has taken on the responsibilities of a UN Messenger of Peace, and has been honored with countless awards. In Jane's Journey, we accompany her on her travels across several continents, and receive unprecedented access to her intense and exciting past. From her childhood home in Bournemouth, England, we embark to Gombe National Park on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, in Tanzania, her second home. It's where she began her groundbreaking research nearly half a century ago, and she still returns every year to enjoy the company of the chimpanzees that made her the internationally recognized activist so loved and deeply respected.This documentary offers an intimate portrait of ...

Inspirational, beautiful, educational

If all you know about Jane Goodall is her work with chimps, then you're in for a big surprise when you watch this. Truly an amazing and extraordinary woman! This documentary touches on all aspects of Jane's life, from her childhood, to her work with the chimps, her family, her activism, her work with "Roots and Shoots", and to her current life (as of 2010).

Beautiful photography, heart-warming dialogue, and touching stories. This will keep your interest the entire time. In fact, I didn't want it to end; I wanted to see more of her life, hear more of her stories. She is an inspiration to so many people, myself included.
