TV Times - - Thursday -

man’s best friend is one of the most suc­cess­ful species on the planet and Pa­trick Aryee con­tin­ues to ex­plain why as he traces the ca­nine fam­ily tree back to Asia and Africa. From foxes with acute hear­ing, such as the desert-dwelling fen­nec fox, to African chase preda­tors that hunt in or­gan­ised ‘tag-team’ for­ma­tions, all these amaz­ing ca­nines have adapted to sur­vive in Earth’s most hos­tile lo­ca­tions. Fi­nally, on the coast of South Africa, we wit­ness a cun­ning jackal steal the food of a less wily hyena. If this se­ries has left you want­ing a pup of your own, then tune into BBC2 at 8.00pm for 10 Pup­pies and Us, which fol­lows new dog own­ers.
