Summary "Sir David Attenborough's encounter with mountain gorillas during the filming of 'Life On Earth' (1978) is one of the greatest moments in television history. In this journey of re-discovery, Sir David recounts his very personal experiences with the mountain gorillas of Rwanda. Ever since they were discovered over a century ago, the gorillas have been threatened by loss of habitat, poaching, disease and political instability. But despite all odds their numbers have increased. Sir David tells the extraordinary story of how conservationists like the late Dian Fossey have battled to save the mountain gorilla from the brink of extinction. His remarkable story reveals how these magnificent great apes have triumphed over adversity to become the conservation success they are today. -- ABC1 website
