HD Footage of Chimpanzees Needed Urgently!

I am looking for HD vis of chimpanzees in their natural environment.. general social behaviour.. as well as footage of them behaving more aggressively, or at least looking aggressive (it could just be play). We talk about how in chimp society a small group of males use aggression to dominate the others (and that's repeated all the way down the social structure). We also talk about how they are very aggressive with other groups of chimps. Will consider 35mm to HDcam.
