Description
Summary:Touch, sight, smell, hearing and taste; the five senses help define what it means to be human. Our lives are enriched as a result; we can appreciate the rich sounds of a symphony orchestra, the visual splendour of the natural world and the subtle notes of a fine wine. But they give us far more than just an appreciation of beauty. Every second, our senses gather millions of details about the world around us, sending our brains a constant stream of information. They are our only link with the outside world and are an important part of human survival. This programme goes back into the Horizon archive to reveal how our understanding of the senses has changed over the years in our quest to discover how we sense the world around us.
