The Chimpanzee & Me - Prof Ben Garrod

For over a decade, Ben Garrod has studied chimpanzees to find ways to protect and conserve them. We join Ben on a journey that has taken him around the world, studying eastern chimps in the humid forests of Uganda and the critically endangered western chimps of Liberia.  In his trademark infectious, lighthearted style, Ben describes encounters with chimpanzees that highlight the different threats they face. From the illegal international pet trade, to bushmeat markets, and the effects of relentless habitat loss – not to mention how your new furniture, your toothpaste and even your mobile phone are all implicated in their falling numbers.  With access to world-renowned primatologist Dr Jane Goodall, Ben shows how we can protect the chimps of the future and help conserve this endlessly fascinating species.

Ben Garrod - Red Ape

For the last decade, a team of frontline medics has been fighting to save Borneo's critically endangered orangutans. Armed with cameras, International Animal Rescue has documented their struggle: pulling apesfrom devastated jungle, giving emergency medical care, rehabilitating and releasing the healthiest orangutans back into the wild. This is both the story of their life-saving work and of how one of our closest wild relatives has been pushed to the brink of extinction.

Combining genuine rescue footage with contributions from experts throughout, this documentary looks toward the future and asks what hope remains to save the orangutan.

Did dinosaurs eat their own families?

Was every Tyrannosaur a fearsome carnivore?

Why did Allosaurus headbutt its prey to death?

Come and test your knowledge against Ben Garrod (the TV scientist in the BBC’s ‘Attenborough and the Giant Dinosaur‘).   With the help of TV film footage and photos of his own palaeontological dinosaur digs, he will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about dinosaurs - and more.   

This is an interactive show where children will be given the chance to ask questions and show off their dinosaur knowledge to the audience.   Ben's assistant will roam the auditorium with a microphone and take questions from as many children as possible. Using film footage from the BBC's 'Planet Dinosaur', Ben will talk about the deadliest predators that ever roamed the planet and the ones that, 65 million years ago, would have walked right where they are sitting now.
