BBC2, 9pm HOW do we build so­cial re­la­tion­ships? And how do we make our ear­li­est con­nec­tions with oth­ers? Do we have to learn or are we pro­grammed to bond from birth?

This doc­u­men­tary con­tin­ues with a visit to baby Arthur, just one week old and al­ready part of a sci­ence ex­per­i­ment. Neu­ro­sci­en­tist Dr Sarah Lloyd-Fox uses a portable brain scan­ner to an­a­lyse ac­tiv­ity in Arthur’s brain as he looks at images of toys and faces. But what will it all mean?

Else­where, pre­sen­ter Dr Guddi Singh looks at a dis­turb­ing ex­per­i­ment from the 1950s which looked at the bonds be­tween mother and child us­ing baby mon­keys.

Are ba­bies nat­u­rally so­cial?
