BABIES: THEIR WONDERFUL WORLD
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?
