On Tuesday February 13, 2007 at 8:00 PM eastern time, public television stations will broadcast a NOVA program entitled The Last Great Ape. This program will feature the Bonobo, which is also known as the Pygmy Chimpanzee. A Congo expedition examines the life of these gentle creatures, who often settle disputes by having sex rather than fighting. Listed below is an excerp from the Nova website:
You can read the complete interview with Frans deWaal at Frans de Waal - Nova Interview. Dr. de Waal has written a number of fascinating books, including Chimpanzee Politics and Our Inner Ape. Note: I only list these Amazon.com websites for the readers' convenience. I am not compensated by Amazon.com for providing this information.
I am certain that this will be a compelling program. After watching it, I invite viewers to send your comments to Monkey Prose.
