About the show

Discover the true story of the irresistible rise and unparalleled ambition of the warrior chimpanzees of Ngogo, Uganda, in this two-hour documentary.  

The warrior apes, known as the largest troop of chimps ever discovered, control a vast empire and reign with terror through war, politics and alliances.

Built upon over 20 years of remarkable storylines – from their emergence as young adults culminating in their total dominance – the film provides a fresh and uncensored perspective on these magnificent and sometimes terrifying animals.

Researchers, who first started studying and filming these apes in 1993, determined to understand how they had established a unit more than three times the size of anything ever seen in the wild before.

Over more than two decades, their dedication, extraordinary capacity as storytellers and remarkable archive of film – along with new specially shot material – reveal groundbreaking insights into animal behaviour and possibly even into human evolution.
