affraid Now you tell me Doogs lol! I missed last weeks, and the catch up on Sunday. I was recording springwatch, and they clash, but lucky me I watched the sprinwatch recording last night, and at the end I just switched onto Sky programmes, and there was Gorilla School. It's replayed on Animal Planet at
1-00am so you can catch up now LW

Right I obviously missed last weeks as I forgot Sundays programme, but I recorded last nights and thats the one that will be shown this Sunday I presume, so all i've missed is last weeks, if im right, and thats bad enough cos there was so much going on.

Ok, now I know you've both missed last weeks affraid - short update . . . . .

Damien and Mos returned as they were worried about Kwibi and wanted to give him medicine for the parasites they think is troubling him and his group. They tried to find him but unfortunatley they didn't Crying or Very sad They did find the rest of the group though and they were treated with their first dose of medicine. They think that Kwibi is dead but no body has been found so it's not confirmed. I did do a search on the internet to see if this was the case or not but failed miserably, maybe, just maybe he is still alive :?:

Little Lokoko was accepted better in the group. Tiny Tia was getting ready to spend her first night with the rest of her group - you actually see how she gets on this week.

There was a lovely 'Kwibi' moment when Damien came into the forest and shouted on the little ones, the 'Cmon' he does and they all came running up to him and wanted a 'Bosie' - yes its that Aberdeen word again.

If I remember rightly there was a wee bit about the Eco Guards doing their stuff also.

That's about it I think . . . . . Very Happy

I know WS, I don't think I'll ever forget that special moment when he and Damien met after 5 years apart, brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it.

As I said though, searched the internet to see if I could get it confirmed that he was dead but couldn't, just gives us a wee bit of hope

Post  Doogs on Fri Jun 18, 2010 11:14 am

I know WS, was thinking that myself. Might even email Damien's place Howletts and see if they can confirm if there's anything else in the pipeline - surely they can't leave it at that !!!

How cute was little Bumbi/Bumbee however you spell her name. It looks so harsh on the little ones when they are being integrated into the group but it has to be done to get the pecking order right. She was a fiesty little toot anyway and fairly stood up for herself Very Happy

Was speaking to hubbie last night about getting away for a bit later in the year and he said we could go down south take in some horse racing, some footie and we could go to Monkey World in Dorset. I said after watching this programme I think I would rather go to Howletts to see the gorillas !!! I love you I love you Will keep you posted on whether we do or not cheers

Brilliant WS, thanks for that, i'm really pleased I haven't missed it, i'm also going to try and watch the repeats as I missed the first couple of episodes, it was thanks to Doogs mentioning it that I remembered to watch the rest.

Okay I am now sitting here in floods of tears watching this again !!! Crying or Very sad

I think what now makes it sad is the fact that Kwibi is no longer with us and this moment, truly magical as it was, is even more special 'cause it could never happen again Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

Amazing clip.
