Sir David Attenborough is returning to our screens this weekend, starting 11th Nov 2018, for a major new natural history series, Dynasties.
Airing on BBC1 on Sunday nights at 8.30pm, this five-part programme follows on from the hugely popular Planet Earth II and Blue Planet II to explore the lives of different tribes from the animal kingdom.
Each episode will take a different species in a different part of the world for its subject.
Forget Brexit and count butterflies, says Sir David Attenborough
The first follows a troop of chimpanzees in the jungles of Senegal and Guinea, West Africa, and the plight of its alpha male, also named David.
The primate faces challenges to his leadership after three years at the helm and will have to fight to retain control. The power struggle he finds himself in is further complicated by the coming dry season, which poses new threats from forest fires and dwindling resources. Watch it here
