Watching Desmond Morris

Today on Far Future Horizons it gives me great pleasure to present the documentary “Watching Desmond Morris” hosted by Sir David Attenborough.

Desmond Morris has been watching us for nearly fifty years, applying his skills as a zoologist to human beings as if they were just another animal.

Books such as "The Naked Ape" and "Manwatching" made him a household name. Now it is time to turn the tables and ask him a few questions.

With contributions from experts such as Richard Dawkins and Oliver James, and from Morris's old friend Sir David Attenborough, we ask how credible Morris's observations, and the conclusions, really were, and whether there is still anything to learn from studying humans in the way the he did.

Desmond Morris kindled my interest in human evolution and paleoanthropology.
I have been a great fan of zoologist Desmond Morris' work since Adolescence. And, more than anyone else in the fields of anthropology and human psychology has had a profound influence on me and the way I view the human species.

Through Morris’ work,  I developed an appreciation of how we humans have emerged from a primate matrix to become a unique and wondrous species.  

So without further ado we present “Watching Desmond Morris”.
