The great apes which include chimps, orangutans, gorillas and bonobos, seem to have rich emotional lives similar to our own. But just how smart are these animals? A new generation of investigators is revealing the secret mental lives of great apes that are turning out to be far smarter than most experts ever imagined. Scientists are at last zeroing in on what separates us from our closest living relatives.

Ape Genius, Filmmaker Folly

By Mary

from Illinois

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS NOVA: Ape Genius DVD:

Nice educational resource appropriate for use in high school and undergraduate classrooms. The information is presented clearly and accessibly, and will provide a good starting point for further discussion. The Hollywood-esque dramatic shots of backlit chimps holding sharpened sticks is hilariously campy and will get your students laughing - and perhaps inspire them to pay a bit more attention during class.

Comments about PBS NOVA: Ape Genius DVD:

I saw this on TV and I knew I wanted to get it for my oldest niece. The reason I would get her her 14th DVD about primates? While getting her bachelor's at Washington U. in St. Louis, she worked in the primate lab there. I told her that if it is too much of a repeat of previous DVDs, she could donate it to a school library or someplace like that.
