This weekend will see the return of Monkey Life to our screens, the long running documentary series following life at the world’s biggest primate rescue centre – Monkey World in Dorset.
Now in its 11th series, this edition of Monkey Life was filmed over a year and follows Dr Alison Cronin and the team as she rescues primates in need from around the world. Viewers will be taken on an emotional roller coaster as they watch the drama unfold each week, with rescues including two guenons, a baby loris and a chimpanzee from Lebanon and Turkey.
Monkey Life also follows life back at the rescue centre in Dorset, home to over 250 primates, and reveals how the team and monkey inhabitants deal with new arrivals and also some sad goodbyes too.
At the heart of everything they do Monkey World’s mission is to rehabilitate primates into groups of their own kind while offering a safe, stable home for life.
The programme is one of the longest running docu-soaps on TV, with its former incarnation, Monkey Business first appearing on our screens in 1998. Nicknamed by staff “Beast-enders”, the series won a place in the public’s hearts with its fascinating, and often tragic insight into monkey and ape rescues.
Monkey Life series 11 will be shown on Freeview channel Pick at 6pm, every Sunday from 11th November 2018.
