From the guy who made "Man on Wire". Excellent documentary.
For those that don't know Nim is about a baby chimp that is raised as a human and taught sign language to see how it develops communication skills. I vaguely remember hearing something about this in the 90's. Like Wire, it is a real life story that feels like something imagined for a movie.
One of the best shows on TV...and yet I haven't heard about it getting renewed...not only them, but Candice Bergen was one of the best additions to the cast midway through last season, and they've really done a good job with the show...I love it.
