Rare footage shows rescue of Hollywood’s Jimmy the Chimp on NT’s Elcho Island | ABC News

ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Rare footage shows rescue of Hollywood’s Jimmy the Chimp on NT’s Elcho Island | ABC News” – below is their description.

It was a rescue on the high seas that played out like a Hollywood drama. A magician, a movie-star chimp, and a Filipina starlet stranded for days without food or water on a luxury yacht slowly sinking off the Northern Territory coast. The story captured in rock art in the Arnhem Land region was also immortalised on film, with tape of the chimp’s rescue forgotten until a recent discovery in the ABC archives.

  • In This Story: Northern Territory

    The Northern Territory (aka NT) is a vast federal territory in Australia famed for its Outback desert landscapes. In the arid Red Centre lie the iconic sandstone monolith Uluru (Ayers Rock), the red-rock domes of Kata Tjuta and the sculpted cliffs of Kings Canyon in Watarrka National Park.

    Alice Springs is the gateway town to the Red Centre desert.

    The NT covers 1,349,129 square kilometres (520,902 sq mi). It is sparsely populated, with a population of only 245,353.

    The economy is based largely on mining and petroleum, which during 2018–2019 contributed 23% of the gross state product, or $5.68 billion, accounting for 92.4% of exports.

    The capital and largest city is Darwin. The population is concentrated in coastal regions and along the Stuart Highway.
