After nearly 100 years of invasive medical testing on chimpanzees, the American government recently announced that it would stop using chimps for biomedical research. Finally the lab chimps will be retired from scientific service and be allowed to live out their final years in rehabilitation sanctuaries. In this film, presenter Sue Perkins will immerse herself in the world of our chimps, using this pivotal moment in man’s history with chimpanzees to explore the complex and ever changing relationship between us and our closest genetic relatives.
