The human animal a natural history of the human species. The language of the body ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 134 libraries worldwide
Although humans can make more than 3,000 hand gestures, even the simpest have numerous variations and interpretations. This program, filmed on five continents, examines not only hand gestures, but facial expressions, head shakes and body distance as well--and the misunderstandings that can occur when body language is transported across cultural lines. Supression of body language is also discussed, along with "nonverbal leakage," in which the body's language can belie a speaker's words.

Overal zijn mensen geobsedeerd door de idee dat de romantische paarband duurzaam moet zijn, al weet iedereen dat de intense liefde niet lang kan duren.

De andere sekse waarin mannen en vrouwen verschillen by Desmond Morris ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1997 in Dutch and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Dat mannen en vrouwen verschillend in elkaar zitten is niet alleen aan het uiterlijk te zien. Hoe anders is de andere sekse eigenlijk? Desmond Morris bekijkt de verschillen tussen man en vrouw vanuit alle mogelijke perspectieven. Vanuit de oertijd onderzoekt Morris hoe de biologische verschillen tussen de seksen in de loop der tijden zijn veranderd. Daarbij kijkt hij nauwlettend naar de manieren waarop de biologische verschillen zijn overdreven en onderdrukt door de invloed van verschillende culturen.
