Monkeys_ An Amazing Animal Family - Asia-promo-still-1.jpg image

In this stunning natural history series biologist Patrick Aryee takes us on a journey through time, to retrace the primate family’s astonishing rise to power through the twists and turns of its family tree. Through intimate monkey encounters, sumptuous wildlife photography, field demos and a CGI family tree - he shows how different key members of this family evolved bizarre bodies, intelligent behaviours and tight-knit social groups to thrive in some of the planet’s wildest landscapes. The Primate family is OUR animal family. The story of how we came to be – told through our many cousins and distant relatives. Squabbling siblings, devious con artists, cruel despots and doting parents – in each of our primate characters we see a little piece of ourselves. Relevant – entertaining – heart-warming - this is a reflection of our human condition.
