Chances are, if you’ve made it this far into an is­sue of In­side Soap, you’re prob­a­bly the sort of per­son who finds fam­ily dra­mas in­ter­est­ing. Well, in the lat­est se­ries from the BBC’S award-win­ning Nat­u­ral His­tory Unit, Sir David At­ten­bor­ough and the team have spent four years fol­low­ing five of the world’s most cel­e­brated and en­dan­gered an­i­mals in the wild, wit­ness­ing the com­plex fam­ily dy­nam­ics that rule them.

The se­ries opens in the Ke­dougou re­gion of Sene­gal, where a group of chim­panzees is led by their al­pha, David. He’s been in charge for three years and is now at the stage where his ri­vals are ready to over­throw him. David has no al­lies, so he must play the pol­i­tics of the group shrewdly.
