Chimpcam: The Movie

Duration: 01:27

It took thousands of years of human ingenuity for humans to invent video, but these ordinary chimps at Edinburgh Zoo have grasped something of the technology in just 18 months. This is the culmination of Besty Herrelko's research project with the chimps at the zoo: providing them with a video camera and screen, this is the first ever film recorded entirely by chimps.
