John Bishop's Gorilla Adventure
John Bishop encounters mountain gorillas and discovers they have more in common with his family than he ever imagined! Male mountain gorillas are just like his teenage sons – bulging muscles but no sense. Plus they fart, flirt and pick their noses. The Gorilla Doctors, a group of vets who have dedicated their lives to saving the mountain gorillas left in the wild, do difficult, dangerous work, as John experiences when a huge Silverback threatens the team. But it’s also deeply rewarding: gorilla numbers are increasing through the constant vigilance of the Gorilla Doctors and a concerted conservation effort.
