Operation Lemur with John Cleese : Don’t Miss This

For those of you interested in Lemurs, this documentary is not to be missed.
“They’re gentle, well mannered, and pretty and yet great fun . . . I should have married one.” – John Cleese.

premiering nationally on Sunday, October 10, 1999, at 8 p.m. (ET) on PBS (check local listings). Cleese had a lifelong obsession with the lemurs of Madagascar — he first fell in love with a ringtail lemur at the tender age of 12. Last year, he raised money to release five black and white ruffed lemurs born in captivity back into the rainforests of Madagascar. The U.S.-bred “Carolina Five,” as these lemurs are affectionately known, are the first lemurs ever to be released into the wild. The hope is that they will survive and eventually mate with the existing population of lemurs to introduce new genes into the population.

It wouldn’t surprise us if John Cleese has a trip planned to the amazing Necker Island to visit with Sir Richard Bransons new friends.
