The human animal a natural history of the human species( Visual )

5 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member 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

The Biology of love by Desmond Morris( Visual )

6 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries 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
Beyond survival( Visual )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program explores the biological basis for creativity and the human propensity for creative expression and art appreciation. The proliferation of visual art for symbolic, decorative, and narrative purposes is discussed within the context of "adult playfulness": the meaningful pursuits in which people engage when not involved in survival-related activities

The Human zoo( Visual )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program examines humanity's basic drive to occupy and defend a territory and form a social hierarchy. From primitive settlements to modern cities, anthropologist Desmond Morris examines the evolution of the human animal's tribal lifestyle, the complexities of urban living and the methods that members of big-city "super-tribes" use to cope with the stresses of overcrowding, and the way in which status is reinforced through the media. The roots of urban violence and the social/territorial dynamics of the underworld are studied as well
The Hunting ape( Visual )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Immortal genes( Visual )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In addition, lessons from animals and the ancients are noted, such as the best posture for giving birth

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
