Reviews

Monkey Planet is a stunning visual experience that explores the amazing world of primates and reveals just what makes our animal family so special.

Zoologist Dr George McGavin presents a three-hour exploration of the whole primate family, including strange lemurs, acrobatic monkeys, and the enigmatic apes.

From the snowy mountains of Japan to the windswept savannah of South Africa, this series uncovers the secrets of the primate family success: ingenious survival tactics and extraordinary physical adaptations; fascinating family lives that mirror ours in so many ways; and highly intelligent, flexible minds that show that the smartest primates are more like us than you d ever think possible.

Dr McGavin discover the ninja tarsier, a spring-loaded ambush predator the size of a tennis ball, the magnificent herds of geladas in the mountains of Ethiopia. Then there are baboons with a hunger for flamingo flesh; macaques with criminal minds; fluorescent mandrills who wear war-paint to do battle; and Ardry, a real life gremlin who 'sees' the unseeable with her 'extra-terrestrial' fingers.

This is a wonderful series. the cinematography is wonderful and we're treated to a wide variety of primates as the series progresses.

Dr George McGavin is a wonderful, warm presenter - whose wonderment at being so close to these amazing animals is clear to see.

This series is absolutely brilliant. Very well presented.The personality of the presenter and his attitude is so likeable. Photography is wonderful. Not too much ghastlynbackground music which ruins many documentaries.

Top-notch BBC documentary, fabulous photography, informative commentary: a revelation in every scene.
The music is completely appropriate - for a change! I have to say this contrasts so strongly with David Attenborough's early stuff - whose bizarre electronic cacophony rendered otherwise stupendous, state-of-the-art Natural History almost unviewable.

A fascinating insight into monkey behaviour. Educational and fun to watch. I shall view monkeys differently in future.
