Wyoming PBS - KCWC-HD

Nova


PBS's premier science-documentary series, which has won six Peabody Awards and more than 20 Emmys (four in 2002 alone) since its 1974 debut. `Nova' clearly, and often engagingly, `demystifies' a vast range of science, technology and history topics---past and present---and doesn't neglect the human aspect of the story. Its many memorable shows include 1983's `The Miracle of Life,' about the conception and development of a fetus (which was remade in 2001); and 2002's `Why the Towers Fell.'

Episode title: Inside Animal Minds: Who's the Smartest?
Episode description: An examination of animal intelligence. Scientists have observed that many clever creatures live in complex social groups, including apes, dolphins and elephants.
