The se­ries starts by fol­low­ing a troupe of chim­panzees in Sene­gal, West Africa. The group’s leader, David, has held onto power for three years, and faces con­stant, and po­ten­tially deadly, chal­lenges for his crown from aggressive ri­vals Luthor and Jumkin.

‘This is a story about power, pol­i­tics and the fight for sur­vival,’ says At­ten­bor­ough. ‘David is the long­est-run­ning al­pha this group has ever seen but there will al­ways be ri­vals. It was my mis­for­tune that this old griz­zled chim­panzee, who has been there for­ever and is won­der­ing how he is even hold­ing on, is called David!’
