Jane Goodall: Oral History of Primatology

Jane Goodall Chimpanzee Expert
On April 28th 2011, Jane Goodall was asked to present an oral history of Primatology. Not only is Jane Goodall the most prominent Chimpanzee expert, but she has gone on record twice claiming to be a Bigfoot believer. The first time was in 2002 in an NPR interview with Ira Flatow, and again more recently with an interview with the Huffington Post.

The video resonates with Bigfooters, not only can we identify with Jane Goodall's curiosity to learn, but it is interesting to note that Jane Goodall, like many of us, was an amateur. Many of the observations and breakthroughs came before she had a degree. She was working for and was funded by an anthropologist. This made her aware that there is a cross pollination between anthropology and primatology. This video is a inspiration and a blue print for any of us who want to find Bigfoot.

Below is the video from The University of Cambridge: Personal Histories Project:
The Personal Histories Project presents

Jane Goodall, introduced by William McGrew, speaking at the Oral History of Primatology at Cambridge. Other panellists included Robert Hinde and Richard Wrangham. Together they remembered the beginnings and development of primatology during decades of research. Robert Hinde's and Richard Wrangham's segments will be added shortly.

This Personal Histories was filmed at the University of Cambridge by the Project's student film crew on 28th April 2011 and funded by the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research, the Newton Trust, the Roberts Fund, the Thriplow Charitable Trust and by many private donors.
