The story of this eye-opening documentary happens four years before Jane Goodall ventured into the world of chimpanzees. Anne became the first person in the world to study animal behaviour in the wild in Africa. When she returned home armed with ground-breaking research, the insurmountable barriers she faced as a female scientist proved much harder to overcome.
