The first of a two part programme assessing the chances of survival in the wild of the great apes - gorillas, chimpanzees and bonobos. Goes on the trail of the illegal bushmeat trade in the forests of Central Africa - formerly a stronghold for the endangered apes, now opened up by logging and mining - and in Europe, where bushmeat has become a delicacy for an urban elite who are ready to pay high prices to obtain it. Includes footage of a slaughtered chimpanzee family and a group of poachers at work, dismembering and smoking the meat of an elephant to be sold in local markets.
