As always the Nature series does not disappoint. There are two hour long episodes on this disk and both are great. My one caveat would be that they give too much time to Raymond Coppinger and his theories of the evolution of wolves to dogs and just gloss over the competing mDNA evidence. But, at the time this show was made Coppinger's theories were all the rage so it's not surprising the show focuses on them. Personally, as a total dog evolution geek, the footage of the Belyaev foxes was the very best part of the whole thing. I would love a couple hours just on that study.

"This is a fascinating program following the development of our relationship with dogs. Through the same genetic information now indicating where on earth man developed and how he changed, scientists are following the dramatic changes the dog has undergone, including how special, how wondrous is the canine link to us"

"I just watched part 1 of this program on PBS last night. It was so good that I decided to come to Amazon and buy the dvd. I was amazed at the historical evolution of our 4 legged best friends. I found myself saying out loud "Wow" over and over again. It's that good. It gave me a new appreciation for my dogs and also talked about the relationship humans have had with dogs from the beginning. They are amazing animals, incredibly adaptable and historically very important to the survival of the human race. I will be buying this dvd to see part 2 and I'm sure it will be equally as enlightening and entertaining as the first part. Even if you aren't a dog owner I think you could appreciate the significance of dogs in our lives and the gifts they have bestowed on us throughout time."
