I thought this program was excellent. Loved the part where the author saw himself as the 11th primate species in the forest. All of humanity would gain by that perspective. Well done!

Interesting. Regarding the emergency calls made by the chimps, I don't think animals need to understand other animals' "languages". It's more about the specific sound. They can associate it with an emergency. Likewise, despite the many languages spoken by humans, if someone anywhere in the world screams, one can assume that something's wrong.
