This documentary examines the nearly 30 years worth of primate research conducted by Jane Goodall. In 1960, Goodall arrived in Tanzania and became a fixture in the Gombe Reserve, a wildlife refuge. Here she began her lengthy study of wild chimpanzees and their social structure. By not interfereing in the chimps lives, but always being present, Goodall gained a moderate level of acceptance from her subjects, allowing her to observe the most intimate of these primates social interactions. National Geographic: Among the Wild Chimapanzees accompanies Goodall as she explains her work and points out several chimp actions for the camera, including a now famous scene of chimps using tools to gather food.
