Inside nature’s giants: Rogue baboon, Channel 4

The talented Tom Parsons has been editing ‘Inside nature’s giants: Rogue baboon’ for Windfall Films.

This program looks at a huge alpha male baboon that led a band of baboons on a rampage through a Capetown suburb – until the authorities were forced to euthanise him as he grew increasingly violent.

Mark Evans and Joy Reidenberg travel to South Africa to dissect the first primate in the series. Intricate dissection of the muscles and nerves reveal how remarkably similar human and baboon hands are, Meanwhile Simon Watt discovers how these primates have adapted to survive in the suburbs of their fellow primates.
