Fol­low­ing the mas­sive suc­cess of last year’s Blue Planet II,

Sir David At­ten­bor­ough re­turns to present this breath­tak­ing new se­ries that fol­lows five dif­fer­ent an­i­mal dy­nas­ties fac­ing huge chal­lenges. Tonight’s first episode fol­lows a troupe of chim­panzees in Sene­gal, West Africa, which is led by an el­derly al­pha male. He has been the leader for three years, which is a long time for any chimp, and he must fend off con­stant and po­ten­tially fa­tal chal­lenges in or­der to keep his crown. Touch­ing, and at times heart­break­ing, this new ad­di­tion to the BBC’S nat­u­ral his­tory cat­a­logue is a wor­thy suc­ces­sor to the likes of Blue planet and planet Earth.
