Amazing Monkeys

Mischievous monkeys. Intelligent apes. And a cast of charismatic and eccentric cousins and distant relatives. Over the course of 55 million years, primates have evolved and branched off to conquer the world. But how did they rise to power? Join host and biologist Patrick Aryee on a journey through time, and across the globe, to come face-to-face with some of the 400+ species of primates thriving in our jungles, deserts, grasslands and mountains. It's a story of epic migrations, lost lands, mass extinctions, and one remarkable family tree.
