Canadian pubcaster CBC will premiere Canadian documentary She Walks with Apes (pictured) on Sept. 20, commissioned for the 59th season of documentary strand ‘The Nature of Things’.
Ottawa native and Emmy-winning actor Sandra Oh narrates the 60-minute doc, which shares a glimpse of Jane Goodall’s early years as a pioneer of research on chimpanzees.
Mark Starowicz was a long-time producer and executive with the CBC, joining the pubcaster in the 1970s. He was promoted to executive director of documentary programming in 2006, until his departure in 2015 to become an independent producer.
She Walks with Apes is internationally distributed by CBC & Radio-Canada Distribution. The doc will be available to stream on CBC Gem following the Sept. 20 premiere.
