Grrrr
One cannot help but feel this programme would have been considerably aided by first defining what it meant by 'intelligence' - one moment the word seemed to be used to refer to some general problem solving ability and at others to denote something more akin to consciousness. Similarly, one does wish commentators today would recognise the limitations of simile - to say that something is like something else (eg thought is like computerised information processing) is not to say that it can be treated as being equivalent to it. Finally, to conclude this rant into the void, it was strange to see a mathematician so set on trying to reduce a complex phenomenon to a basic set of underlying simple rules - Godel's theorum anyone?

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.
