The Immortal Genes
The Human Animal: A Personal View of the Human Species is a BBC nature documentary series written and presented by Desmond Morris, first transmitted in the UK from 27 July 1994. The series was produced in associaion with Discovery Channel.
Morris describes it as "A study of human behavior from a zoological perspective." He travels the globe, filming the diverse customs and habits of various regions while suggesting common roots.
"I've sometimes been accused of degrading mankind, of insulting human dignity, of making man beastly. This surprised me because I like animals, and I feel proud to call myself one. I've never looked down upon them, so to call human beings animals is not, to me, degrading. It's simply being honest: putting us in our place as part of the scheme of nature on the planet Earth."
-Desmond Morris, Closing statement of episode 1
