Mountain Gorilla

Our endangered relative Mountain gorillas and humans are alike in so many ways. Their stories mirror our own experiences of life, from sibling rivalry, single parents and clashes between fathers and sons, to fading leaders and young upstarts. For the first time, this series follows this charismatic species across the three countries that make up its home: Rwanda, Uganda and the war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo. Filmed over six months, Mountain Gorilla offers the most detailed picture of gorilla life to date
