Tonight is the series premiere of Baby Chimp Rescue on BBC America at 8/7c. The three-part series narrated by Gillian Burke follows an American couple, Jenny and Jim Desmond, as they teach their 21 rescued baby chimps how to survive on their own. A house full of baby chimps, and a heart full of love. Husband and wife Jenny and Jim Desmond are parents to an unusual and very large family – 21 orphaned baby chimpanzees. But their home in Liberia is rapidly becoming too small for this rambunctious troop of animals. Stretched to their limits, the Desmonds are building a sanctuary in the forest so their unconventional family can live as natural a life as possible. But before they can move out, these orphans need to learn how to live like wild chimps. Welcome to baby chimp school, where lessons are taught by Jim, Jenny, a team of local caregivers and chimp expert Ben Garrod. Star pupils include Max, the cheeky future alpha male who is easily distracted from lessons. Ella, the youngest, is a very fast learner. And Lucy, the cleverest, helps teach the others what to do. The series also highlights the work the Desmonds are doing with the wildlife authorities to rescue endangered chimps and teach the public that chimps are neither pets nor food. With the wild chimp population in free-fall, they’re in a race against time to change the way people see chimpanzees – before they disappear forever.
Tonight is also the series premiere of Most Terrifying with Jason Hawes on Travel Channel at 9/8c. World-renowned paranormal investigator Jason Hawes uncovers the world’s most horrifying haunts. He reveals the gravest of locations through spine-chilling firsthand accounts, eerie re-enactments and eye-opening interviews with locals and historians.
