Jane Goodall, one of the best-known scientific researchers and conservationists in the world, became famous for her studies of chimpanzees in Africa in the 1960s. The work made her a pioneer in the field, and a vanguard for female scientists, with a name known to school children all over the world. Now, at 83, Goodall is the subject of new documentary, simply titled, "Jane," which revisits her journey and bolsters the story of her rise by drawing on hours of previously unseen film footage. NewsHour Weekend's Christopher Booker recently talked to Goodall and the film's director, Brett Morgen, as part of our ongoing series of conversations with documentary filmmakers.
