Orangutan Diary, Series 1 Episode 4 of 5

Michaela and Steve are encouraged by the progress of Grendon, Ellie and Lomon - the orphaned baby orangutans who are being retrained for a life in the wild. In the 'Forest School' classes, even tragic Lomon, who was beaten and starved while being kept a pet, is finally making progress. Plus, Steve travels out to rescue a tiny baby orangutan that is being illegally held in a village - but the villagers have no intention of surrendering the baby.
