NATURE: Pets: Wild at Heart
From the award-winning team that brought us EARTHflight and Penguins: Spy in the Huddle comes a revolutionary look at our pets. Our pets may seem familiar but they exist alongside us in a secret world of wild behavior and natural abilities that we hardly recognize.
This two-part series explores this parallel existence with all the techniques that have been perfected in past ""spy"" shows, including HD spy cameras, night vision cameras, drones, miniature on-board cameras and digital high-speed cameras.
Playful Creatures - In this astonishing program filled with innovative photography and scientific revelation, we investigate how our favorite pets get in touch with their wild side through play.

Secretive Creatures - In a program packed with incredible filming techniques, from Schlieren photography that makes smells visible, to moving X-rays, ultra slow-motion, and ultraviolet vision as well as HD horsecams and doggycams, discover how our pets experience the world through their astonishing senses and hidden channels of communication. Includes the sensory secrets of budgies, horses, guinea pigs and goldfish as well as the remarkable abilities of hamsters, cats and dogs.
VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
