The human animal a natural history of the human species ( Visual )
4 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and held by 110 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

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.
