At age 26 and with no formal scientific training, Jane Goodall went to Africa to study chimpanzees at Gombe. What she found changed the way we look at the great apes, and at ourselves. In this hour, we'll be joined by the legendary primatologist and activist Jane Goodall. We'll hear about her work with the chimpanzees, and with the United Nations. Plus, a sneak preview of her new IMAX movie, Jane Goodall's Wild Chimpanzees.
