Title: SEARCH FOR THE GREAT APES
Movie ID: VT2193
Movie Number: 2193
Description: Orangutans and gorillas in the wild.; In the jungles of Borneo, anthropologist Birute Galdikas-Brindamour and her husband Rod are training orphaned orangutans, raised in captivity, to survive on their own, and studying an orangutan called Nick in his natural habitat. Neither job is easy. The young apes are reluctant to leave the couple, and Nick is reluctant to get close.; In the highlands of Africa's Rwanda, zoologist Diane Fossey has had better luck befriending the shy but unpredictable mountain gorilla. One family is seen at play and foraging for food. Used to Fossey's presence, they allow her to approach and even touch them. But her biggest scientific breakthrough may be in deciphering the gorillas' "language," for she has analyzed as many as 17 different gorilla vocalizations.; Richard Kiley is the narrator.;
