The World About Us (1967 - 1987): There are Monkeys at the Bottom of the Garden  (1971)

Isolated  in the heart of bustling Singapore, four troupes of wild 'crab-eating' macaques share the freedom of the city's Botanic Garden with hundreds of visitors.  Monkeys and orchids side by side, and only the orchids are captive.  Fed by passers-by, cursed by hard worked gardners, the animals provide, for the discerning eye, more than a glimpse of the monkey way of life.
