38 THE SCOTSMAN Tuesday 8 September 2020 SCOTSMAN.COM @THESCOTSMA­N Dog Tales: the Making of Man’s Best Friend (BBC Four, 9pm) Dogs have been at our side longer than any other animal. They have made us better hunters and farmers, saved our lives and protected us from harm. This show explains what makes a dog, a dog, and reveals that the emotional bond between human and dog is so profound it is helping transform the lives of criminals in the US prison system. A 30,000 year-old Belgian wolf skull some believe marks the first transition from wolf to dog, while cutting-edge science reveals that the secret of our bond with dogs may be love. But not our love for them – their love for us.

The series Love Your Garden has seen more unusual designs – and in these specials, Alan is looking back at some of his favourites. He’ll reveal the secrets behind them and offer an insight into the work of his team. In this episode, the focus is on gardens for families. While one had their garden transforme­d into a perfect hangout for teenagers (with a design that is a lot more appealing than that might sound to some cynical viewers), there was also a magical transforma­tion for younger children and a woodland adventure garden.
