Ape Man – Social Climbers
Premieres on: 8 October 2013 (Tuesday), 9:00pm (SIN/HK)
Description: Primates are highly social, and most primate species live in groups. Being part of a social group is key to survival, so apes will do everything they can to avoid being excluded. But living in big groups isn’t easy – it takes a lot of intelligence to form and maintain the number of relationships necessary to ensure you don’t get forgotten, or kicked out. Humans have evolved to have the largest social groups of the great apes. From a very young age, we humans strive to be accepted, and, like other apes, do everything we can to avoid exclusion and isolation. This episode explores how to spot those similar ape tactics at work when people are trying to get to the top or trying to get out of trouble.
