I can highly recommend this dvd -- 3 episodes of Nat Geo TV, all on primates. They had great footage, and told stories that not many people had heard before -- of course, we all know Jane Goodall's Gombe Chimps, but the story there was new to me, despite reading her books & every Nat Geo Magazine article written on her & her chimps. They also discussed Bonobos, and 2 families of gorillas in other episodes, so I learned a lot as well as enjoyed seeing how these creatures live :)
