Actually, you are right. I tend to disregard what I see on TV most of
the time also. PBS does have an excellent reputation for being "more
accurate" than commercial and most cable TV, it still, nonetheless,
is TV and TV is made to sell and not be accurate. I will look for a
better source.

BTW, the documentary was about monkey and not humans.
