This program takes us inside a million strong ant colony, housed in a specially constructed glass nest, that allows us to see the inner workings of this society, in a way never seen before. The latest filming techniques reveal in vivid detail the behavior of individual ants, from queens to workers and soldiers, while radio frequency identification tagging builds up a unique picture of how they mobilize to achieve complex feats. The program discovers what happens when the queen is removed from the nest, investigates how ants can solve mathematical problems that defeat modern computers, and asks in what ways a study of ant behavior could help us better organize our own societies. A BBC/Science Channel co-production

The use of heat and utensils to process food may be more than a by-product of human evolution. According to theories presented in this program, cooking began much earlier than previously thought and ignited a series of changes that shaped our physical and mental abilities. Viewers visit South African caves containing evidence, including tools and charred bone material, that pushes back the timescale during which proto-humans began to hunt and tame fire. Meanwhile, several noted anthropologists share other ideas concerning the evolution of the human jaw, stomach, and cranium--asserting that the digestion of cooked meat instead of raw helped our ancestors build bigger brains

Do you see what I see? by Sophie Robinson( Visual )

3 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When a movie hero leaps into a taxi and shouts, "Follow that blue car!" he takes the driver's understanding of color for granted. But, physiologically speaking, can we be sure that the hues we perceive are the same? How do you actually describe them? To what degree are they created in our brains? This program explores what color really means to us, with expertise drawn from the realms of neuroscience, evolutionary biology, and art. Shedding light on the role of color in the animal world and how it influences moods and reactions, the film features brain researcher Beau Lotto, who conducts a series of experiments to prove that perception is key. Meanwhile, color-blind artist Meghan Simms prepares to undergo gene therapy in the hope of improving her response to chromatic stimuli. A provocative and engaging report
