The Language of the body( Visual )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although humans can make more than 3,000 hand gestures, even the simplest has numerous variations and interpretations. This program catalogs not only hand gestures, both friendly and insulting, but facial expressions, head shakes, and body distance as well - and the misunderstandings that can occur when body language is transported across cultural lines. Suppression of body language is also discussed, along with "nonverbal leakage," in which the body's language can belie a speaker's words

Beyond survival( Visual )

The Biology of love( Visual )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This program analyzes the biological nature of love, with its attendant patterns of behavior which ensure pair-bonding and genetic survival. From youth through adulthood to old age, it examines the subtle physical signals and body language humans employ to advertise availability and to indicate readiness for sexual activity. The stages of courtship and the aesthetics of physical beauty are studied along with stresses placed on couples by life in an urbanized world
The human animal : a personal view of the human species( Visual )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a short space of time man has been transformed from a primeval hunter into a modern city dweller and there has not been time for biological changes to take place. The city is like a human zoo and this program looks at how it is affected by tribal behaviour and how humans have adapted their need for space and territory
