Sex in The Wild
In this series, comparative anatomist Professor Joy Reidenberg and veterinarian Mark Evans explore the life and death struggles of earth's greatest species as they attempt to reproduce in some of the most hostile environments on earth. From the very first mating calls -- through some fabulously flirtatious foreplay -- to heart stopping births where the lives of mother and baby hang in the balance, the series examines the wonderful, weird and sometimes wacky world of animal reproduction.

Below is a list of broadcasts scheduled to air in the next 60 days on any of our three channels.

Episode #102
Orangutans
Joy and Mark travel to Borneo to explore the reproduction challenges of our close cousin - the orangutan. The largest tree dwellers on the planet, orangutans mate, give birth and raise their young high in the jungle canopy. At an orangutan sanctuary in the rainforest, Mark and Joy come face-to-face with a super-male and uncover the latest scientific theories about how these kings exert their power over other males and seduce females in their territory. Joy witnesses the sneaky tactics that the females use to take control of mating and Mark finds out how males fight back. The lengthy period dedicated to raising one child is critical to the success of orangutans and all the other great apes - including us.
