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
Episode Description
Wednesday, Jan 3, 2018 - 10:00 PM    "Kingdom in the Clouds" Mountain gorillas are a species in intensive care with scientists, vets and trackers all working alongside each other to conserve the last few hundred families. Little Imoja, abandoned by her mother, is now the sole responsibility of her father, the mighty silverback Kwitonda. Will he be able to provide the care and attention needed by a young orphan? Elsewhere on the slopes of the volcanoes a gorilla gets caught in a poacher's snare. Now it's up to the gorilla doctors to help save her. One of the remaining gorillas, Marembo, is a male looking to take charge of his own group, but he doesn't count on its present leader being as strong, or as wise, as expected.1 of 3 G
