This documentary was shown on "Nova" but it clearly was made in Europe. IMDb lists the language as Russian, but I really think the film was made in the UK--as so many of the folks interviewed had British accents. Unlike all the other PBS documentaries I've seen from Netflix, this one DOES have captions--something I really appreciated.
Unlike other shows I've seen about dogs, this one tries to look at these pets from a scientific perspective. How smart are they? Why are dogs naturally oriented towards people? To which species are dogs most closely related? What is it about dogs that attracts us to them? And, many other questions are addressed in the film. Of all the experiments, I found the one with foxes most interesting--showing how genetics seem to be the determining factor in domestication--not environment.
Very interesting and engaging--this show should appeal to all ages.
