What if humans and animals could talk? In the United States a gorilla named Koko has learnt to communicate. It has taken over 40 years of study, but psychologist Penny Patterson is certain Koko now knows language and can create sentences to express feelings and ideas. And as Ross Coulthart reports, Koko the gorilla just might be the most intriguing interview he's ever done (2016).
