    Default BBC - The Life of Mammals [Part 10]

    BBC - The Life of Mammals
    English | DivX | 688×384 | AC3 | 192kbps | Part ~700MB

    “Warm-bloodedness is one of the key factors that have enabled mammals
    to conquer the Earth, and to develop the most complex bodies in the
    animal kingdom. In this series, we will travel the world to discover
    just how varied and how astonishing mammals are.”

    10. “Food for Thought”

    Broadcast 5 February 2003, the final episode studies apes and the
    evolution of human society to its current state. In Borneo, rescued
    orangutans that have spent time with humans have learned to imitate
    their activities, and have done so entirely on their own initiative.
    They are shown hand-paddling a canoe, washing socks, and using a hammer
    and saw. In Africa, Attenborough encounters a group of orphaned
    chimpanzees that are being prepared for their return to the wild.
    Again, they display a great capacity for gaining knowledge and passing
    it on. A different chimp culture exists in Uganda, where a large
    concentration of rival males lives in an uneasy alliance that, in rare
    cases, can lead to extreme violence. In Tanzania, Attenborough examines
    some of the earliest footprints to have been left by man’s
    upright-walking ancestors. In the Kalahari Desert, indigenous bushmen
    undertake a persistence hunt. It provides an illustration of how early
    man pursued his prey with no weapons. The domestication of cattle led
    to farms and then to villages. With vastly increased food supplies, the
    number of human beings multiplied. Ritual and the arts flourished, and
    villages became towns. Attenborough visits Tikal, the capital of the
    Maya people, who achieved sophisticated advances in architecture,
    mathematics and astronomy. However, the Maya couldn’t sustain their
    population — and, Attenborough warns, we may be precariously close to a
    similar catastrophe.
