The Film

Mark Evans and Joy Reidenberg travel to South Africa to dissect the first primate in the series - a huge alpha male baboon that led a band of baboons on a rampage through a Capetown suburb - until the authorities were forced to euthenase him as he grew increasingly violent. Intricate dissection of muscles and nerves reveal how remarkably similar human and baboon hands are. Meanwhile Simon Watt discovers how these primates have adapted to survive in the suburbs of their fellow primates.
