there’s more drama in this one-off wildlife doc­u­men­tary than there is in an en­tire se­ries of Game of Thrones! It fol­lows the story of gelada ba­boon Brave­heart, who’s the undis­puted king of his group in Ethiopa’s Simien Moun­tains – he’s kept the peace, fought off preda­tors and has ex­clu­sive mat­ing rights

with six fe­males – but at the grand old age of 12, he’s get­ting on and if his ‘harem’ sud­denly de­cide he’s not up to the job of pro­tect­ing them and their 12 ba­bies, or ex­pand­ing the brood, they will blithely give him the old heave-ho. With plenty of other males will­ing to take his place, Brave­heart has an epic fight on his hands…

Can Brave­heart hold on to his sta­tus as king?
