"Chimps R Us"
An episode devoted to our closest cousins, chimpanzees, with whom we share 98% or our genetic material. This episode tells stories on the social life of chimps, on their thinking abilities, and on their very human sense of self-awareness. Also, Alan Alda meets Jane Goodall, who pioneered studies of chimps in the field and now devotes her energies to conservation in the wild, and to the establishment of sanctuaries for chimps discarded as pets and from medical research.
