For the 50th anniversary of Earth Day on April 22, 2020, the National Geographic channel will broadcast back-to-back premieres of Photo Ark: Rarest Creatures and Jane Goodall: The Hope.

Jane Goodall: The Hope will air at 8 p.m. – a two-hour documentary on the life and times of the figure considered by many to be the world’s foremost expert on chimpanzees for her decades of experience and studies on the primate since she went to the Gombe Stream National Park in Tanzania in 1960.

Along with Goodall, the documentary also features interviews with The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry, as well as experts in the field such as former US secretary of state James Baker, Harvard University professor of biological anthropology Richard Wrangham, director of the National Institutes of Health Francis Collins, and co-founder and director of the Institute of Human Virology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, Robert Gallo, who co-discovered HIV as the cause of AIDS.
