This week’s Science Night starts with everyone’s favorite creatures – their pets. An episode of Nature discovers how pets stay in touch with their wild side. NOVA examines the growing danger of sinkholes before David Eagleman explores what makes you, you.
In this astonishing program filled with innovative photography and scientific revelation, we investigate how our favorite pets get in touch with their wild side through play. From talkative budgies, marathon-running hamsters, wall-climbing cats and diving dogs, as well as an island where rabbits rule and a city where dogs live a secret double life – discover how our pets’ playful games are just a whisker away from the wild.
