[edit] Information

Comedian and wildlife enthusiast Bill Bailey presents a documentary series revealing the secret lives of the baboons who live near Cape Town in South Africa.

[edit] Whale of a Time

Bill introduces the mischievous Smitz troop. Living on the coastline, they have their eyes on the food and belongings of unwary tourists. Lurking in the bushes is a criminal mastermind - Merlin, the Fagin of the roadside, plotting his next heist. When whale-watchers flock to view magnificent marine mammals from the lay-bys, the brainy baboons are quick to break into every car, checking for anything that will make a baboon-style picnic.

[edit] Attack of the Urbanites

Bill introduces the Da Gama troop, who inhabit the urban jungle of the Cape Town suburbs and can often be found wreaking havoc on the nearby naval base. Every morning, these mischievous apes use the town like a giant playground. Given the chance, they will loot and pillage, but there is one thing that can thwart their plans - baboon monitors, a team of men hired to keep primates out of people's homes.

[edit] Fatal Attraction

The male baboons of the Smitz troop must go on the defensive to protect their land and families from Jimmy, an aggressive intruder. There is also a stranger making moves on the Tokai troop, but Clint's approach is worlds apart. While Jimmy bares his teeth, Clint tries gentler tactics, sitting slumped with his head down - but will the pacifist approach work with the Tokai troop's leader, Danny?

[edit] Load of Rubbish

Living in the midst of a town, the Da Gama troop make a fine living off their human neighbours, going through the bins or even snatching food from open windows - but there is one day that defines their calendar. Wednesday is bin day, and when the wheelie bins go out, the troop begins an ultimate treasure hunt - but can they eat their fill before the bin men arrive?

[edit] Catch of the Day

When fishermen arrive to unload their boats, they get carried away with the size of their catch and forget something important - they are in Smitz troop territory, and their cars are targets for a determined and thieving band of baboons. Plus a sports ground deep in the Tokai forest is taken over by the furry funsters - get ready for the Baboon Olympics!

[edit] Gate Crashers

In this episode, wily male baboon Merlin plans the raid of his life - breaking into a restaurant. Meanwhile, the rest of the troop chill out in a paddling pool, overweight gangster Jimmy trashes a vegetable garden and, in the Tokai forest, bachelor boys Clint and Manni gate-crash a children's birthday party.

[edit] Turf War

In this episode, trouble is brewing on the coast road. The road is home to the Smitz troop, but it looks as though the neighbours - and their huge leader - are moving in. Will Fred be able to count on the males in his troop to back him up and defend their home? Meanwhile, Tokai newcomer Clint has found himself a girlfriend, but it is the Da Gama troop which gets to go for a posh dinner - when they break into a kitchen for an Italian meal.

[edit] Baby Boom

Last in Bill Bailey's wildlife documentary series. In the Smitz troop, old boy Merlin makes his biggest raid yet while the rest of his gang enjoy a day at the beach. The Tokai troop welcomes three babies whom every baboon in the family is desperate to meet. But is there trouble brewing in paradise? Plus, thanks to a team of baboon bouncers, it looks as though both the primates and people of the town of Da Gama will finally get some peace.
