The Human Animal - The Language of the Body

Join zoologist Desmond Morris in this new fascinating documentary series as he goes out into the field and studies, in its natural habitat, the most interesting and odd animal of all: humans.

In this first episode, Morris takes us through a world-wide tour of cultural body language differences, emphasizing the well known awkward situations they can produce for those unaware of such differences. More importantly, however, Morris digs deeper and finds that beyond the superficial differences there are biological similarities that turn out to be virtually universal, a product of our evolutionary history, so much so that we share many of them with our closest cousins: chimpanzees. If you are not familiar with the literature behind these observations, prepare to be amazed.
