PBS/BBC-based TV production company and evolutionary biologist, Dr. Neil Shubin film at Washington National Primate Research Center. The crew captured the outstanding research of Drs. Tom Burbacher, Kim Grant, Jay Neitz and Maureen Neitz.

Primate Center researchers, research technicians and animal care staff worked with Center Programs and UW Medicine Strategic Marketing & Communications personnel to accommodate the filming while maintaining normal operations.

Although we won’t see the resulting documentary for some time, the Primate Center received laudatory feedback from the author, producer and film crew.
