Summary Discover the captivating behaviour of mountain gorillas and meet the people determined to look after them in this intimate and personal portrait of our closest living relatives.Mountain gorillas and humans are alike in so many ways. Their stories mirror our own experiences of life, from sibling rivalry, single parents and clashes between fathers and sons, to fading leaders and young upstarts.This series, narrated by Patrick Stewart, follows this charismatic species across the three countries that make up its home: Rwanda, Uganda and the war torn Democratic Republic of Congo.In episode one, the largest gorilla family in the world is starting the perilous journey down to feed on fresh shoots of bamboo. The dominant silverback will have his work cut out keeping them all safe, especially those closest to him. Meanwhile, on the other side of the Rwandan volcanoes a young gorilla has been deserted by her mother. PRODUCTION DETAILSA BBC Production.
