Meet a remarkable gorilla who paints while in captivity, and visit an innovative gorilla orphanage in West Africa. Traditionally, gorillas have been separated in sanitized cells for public safety and viewing. But with few successful gorilla births in captivity, zookeepers took a look at the outdated habitations—and then took action. They discovered that gorillas are group animals, which are unlikely to socialize or breed when isolated in pairs, and responded by developing zoo environments that closely resemble gorilla habitats in the wild. Far from the savage King Kong portrayed in Hollywood movies, you will discover that gorillas are gentle, noble individuals, each with a story to tell. Spanning three continents, The Urban Gorilla will forever change the way you see these magnificent creatures.

Not available for shipment outside the U.S. and Canada.

About DVD-R

DVD-R Format

The DVD-R is a non-rewriteable digital format that is compatible with most commercial DVD players. The DVD-R format is created with MPEG2 Variable Bit Rate Compression with stereo sound.

How our DVDs and DVD-Rs Differ

Customers who purchase programs in the NG DVD-R Library will receive a non-interactive, play only disc. There is no chaptering information on these DVDs, but there are chapter marks approximately every five minutes, which make it easy to fast forward through a program. The DVD-R format provides the digital video and audio quality you expect from all of our DVDs.

NOTE: The NG DVD-R titles are not closed-captioned. We apologize for any inconvenience this limitation may cause.

    Comments about The Urban Gorilla DVD-R:

    This DVD was part of my VHS collection and I was very glad to be able to add it to my DVD collection. "The "Urban Gorilla" gives us a view of this master primate that is not usually seen: different from the "in the wild" or "natural habitat" productions, this view is of the gorilla as it was presented to the curious public when most of us were ignorant of primate society and primate social needs. It is truly an eye-opener, both disturbing and uplifting, and is recommended for educational settings as well as family viewing.
