Summary:
Enjoy a celebration of the senses. Hearing visits the quietest place on earth, the music-rich Maori and a deaf woman regaining her hearing. Smell samples a huge spectrum of smells, from the world's largest perfumery to sweaty t-shirts. Taste savors the miracle of great cooking and eating. Touch discovers that touching is a potent tonic. And Vision explores how art and science enhance our most magical sense. A mysterious perfume. A mouth-watering meal. An ardent kiss. A stirring song. A radiant painting. Our senses are a source of inexhaustible pleasure as well as endless information. Inspired by the bestseller A Natural History of the Senses by poet, author, adventurer and sensory epicure Diane Ackerman, Mystery of the Senses is a vivid blend of science and imagery, literature and folklore, history and personal adventure. In five one-hour programs, this special NOVA miniseries celebrates each of the five senses - hearing, smell, taste, touch and vision - through Ackerman's unique perspective. "To really have a full 'sense' of life," Ackerman insists, "we need to understand how our senses work- their purpose, range and richness- and think about how they reveal the world to us and fill us with endless pleasures."
