The three-part series will follow the work of wildlife vet Jimmy Desmond and his wife Jenny, who run a home for orphaned baby chimpanzees.

Starting with just two baby chimps rescued from the illegal pet trade, the Desmonds now house and care for 21 orphans.

Sharing close quarters with a pack of adopted dogs, the baby chimps cause mischief with their new adopted animal siblings.
