Why Dogs Don Like Chilli But Some Like it Hot
Succulent spiders, fresh maggots, washed millipedes, ripe raw chillies - we all have to eat to live, but one person's fancy is another's poison. Spiders are relished by the Yanomamo Indians of the Amazonian jungle, witchety grubs by the aborigines of Australia - but you don't find either on a menu in this country. How do we - or any other animal for that matter - choose a diet? What about flavour? Why don't we tuck into millipedes? Yet some of us enjoy raw chillies, which a dog would turn his nose up at. Searching the length of Manhattan, cruising the streets of Laredo and braving the Costa Rican jungle,
Jeremy Cherfas takes a look at the wilder side of some of the eating habits of the animal kingdom.

The last film in the series looks at the larger groups that form around married couples. The nuclear family - mother, father, children - is not the only model for family life, and possibly not the best. In Kenya the members of a middle-class polygamous family explain how the household works, and the husband and the wives give rather different versions of its benefits. In India a young couple who live in a large extended family explain what effect it has on their marriage. In Italy a proud grandfather has brought all his clan together to live in the same apartment block. And in California divorce and remarriage is forming a new kind of family, which they call the orange juice family, because it's reconstituted. Assistant producers
