nonesense AI
Interesting but ultimately flawed. Those trying to produce artificial intelligence will always fail, why - because they don't know what intelligence IS. One day we may find out, then it MAY be possible to synthesise intelligence. Its the same reason Psychology is nonsense.

re; Good or Evil
old hat and poorly produced. The ideas presented are not new ('the reptilian brain of a cold killer'), and the over-dramtic, slowly developed plot was boring. The science on this is much further along than the show implies, and we can only hope it is all kept out of the courtroom or we may as well let every bad guy who displays aberrant behaviour, genes, or body chemistry free.

flawed production
pity, as the topic is 'immensely' interesting, but far too much wiff-waff, courtesy of self-promotion amongst the players, to give any real sense of the issue. Point is, they really know F-A for certain, and for certain, once they do know more, they will find more they know nothing about and then try to argue a mathematical excuse for it. I do like the idea of the 'dark flow' and I predict it will lead to the influence of other universes about which we know nothing yet but for this effect. We will one day find that our universe is as a galaxy in our own, a small corner and perturbation in a greater unimaginable whole, and we will be no closer to a 'complete' theory.

Horizon did cooking make us human?
I thoroughly enjoyed the programme, very interesting, factual and easy to follow! Facenating!

re; cooking program
Looong drawn-out look at what has been known for ages. And no mention of the part canine teeth play???

Brilliant
In an age where scientific discoveries and educated learning provide crucial interpretations of the world it warms me that the bbc continue to produce programmes like horizon. Im 25 and my passion for knowledge and learning yeilds no barriers. Horizon is always on my pretty short list of things to watch in a week.

Is this 4real?
This would only encourage abortions and families choosing to spare certain gender of a child.etc

an absorbing doc, scary but..
one can't help but wonder if it isn't just conditioning us to not really care when people in developing countries start dropping dead when those old codecks (sic) from the WHO start poisoning their food....

Kevin Fong looks back through 40 years of Horizon archives to explore what science has revealed about methods of perception. He discovers why babies use touch more than any other sense, how vision can easily be tricked, and the ways technological advancements are getting closer to being able to replace human faculties if they fail
