Orang-utans – Out on a Limb
An engaging and fascinating insight into the behaviour and social psychology of these highly intelligent primates, Orang-utans – Out on a Limb follows wild baby Yossa through the first year of her life.
Providing a unique glimpse into the elusive world of the orang-utan, BBC producer Susan Western and cameraman Martyn Colbeck spent over three months in the remote tropical rainforests of northern Sumatra. The first film to capture wild orang-utan behaviour, stunning cinematography sees the agile creatures effortlessly scale dizzying heights, speed through the forest canopy and construct elaborate mattresses in the tree tops.
Narrated by David Attenborough, Orang-utans – Out on a Limb is a touching and highly entertaining view into the private lives of these highly intellegent ‘people of the forest’.
