What is the series about?
Unlike many of Attenborough’s past programmes, which often take a sweeping look at different species’ behavioural patterns, Dynasties employs a much more focussed approach.
Each of the five episodes focuses on a different species — chimpanzee, lion, emperor penguin, tiger and the painted wolf — and family group, with a look at how they’re ensuring the survival of their dynasty.
The first episode kicks off with a troop of chimpanzees in Senegal, and an alpha male (appropriately called David) who is struggling to maintain his grip on power.
