Yet even here, amongst some of the most challenging conditions on the planet, life finds a way not just to survive, but thrive.

The Wonder of Animals – Great Apes

The Wonder of Animals - Great Apes: Chris Packham explores the evolution of the great ape's brain to reveal how different parts have been adapted over time by its anatomy, ingenuity and sociability, culminating in one of the most complex brains on the planet. Chris examines how the ability to use two hands asymmetrically sets the great ape apart from other tool-using animals and how social living is linked to the evolution of the amygdala in both humans and our…
