DOCUMENTARY OF THE WEEK
The Woman Who Thinks like a Cow. The incredible story of a reaHife Dr Dolittle - a woman who can read and understand animal behaviour like no-one else. Although Dr Temple Grandin is no mind-reader, the explanation she has for her astonishing ability is no less intriguing: she's convinced that her autistic brain allows her to experience the world as an animal does. Labelled mentally disabled at three years old, and only learning to speak aged five, she's now an associate professor of animal science. This documentary follows her remarkable journey to global acclaim.
