Storyline

Primates include apes, monkeys and even more primitive simians, such as lemurs. Thanks to their intelligence, the higher primates take adaptation beyond anatomical evolution: their behavior transcends instinct thanks to learning and invention. Their social life especially holds the seeds of human culture, such as tribal warfare. They occur in widely different environments, which they cleverly interact with, from icy northern Japan to (mainly) the tropics in Old - and New World. Written by KGF Vissers

Going Ape 350 Different Ways
20 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Monkeys, apes, chimpanzees, gorillas, baboons - on and on. Who would have thought there were so many species of primates, and ones we've all heard about? Narrator David Attenborough says there are about 350 species.

Well, many of them are explored in this episode, which takes us from Ethopia to the Japanese Alps to Madagascar and many other stops along the way.

You don't think of primates living is sub-zero and snowy climates but The Japanese Macaque monkey does in the Japanese Alps. There is some beautiful photography in this segment.

There are some strange-looking primates, too, like the five-inch Spectral Tarsier with huge owl-like eyes.

From ring-tailed lemurs to orangutans to capuchins you get a wide variety of primates in here, all nicely photographed. Meanwhile, the secular evolutionary propaganda - which you knew was coming - was limited to just the beginning and ending of the program, so all-in-all it was a pleasant episode.
