Talk to the Animals (2 x 60’) – Real life Dr Doolittle, Lucy Cooke, goes on a mission to answer one of life’s mysteries – how do animals communicate? And if we knew more, could we even talk to some of them? This series takes an in-depth look into the world of animal communication, traveling across the globe to debunk long-held myths, and opens our eyes to what animals can teach us. From compiling a chimp dictionary, chatting up fire flies, learning the names of dolphins and even holding a meeting with hippos. Lucy will be getting up close and personal with these special species to explore the rules of animal ‘speak’, she’ll show that animals pack a lot of surprising info into their ‘sentences’, and they have pretty good social lives. In fact they’re more like us than we ever imagined.
