What It Takes From Both Sexes To Make The Mating Game Work In All Regions DVD Format!!

Whether it be a man and a woman or the birds and the bees, you don't get something for nothing in the wide wild world of sex. It is, throughout the human and animal kingdoms, a heavy investment of time and/or resources, and you have to pay to play, even if you're a cheater like some of the male of the species of the salmon or bluegill variety. All this is governed by the over-riding need of both the male and female of all species: to reproduce and pass on their genes to the next generation. To that end, humans, both men and woman, value kindness and intelligence above all, but after that, the requirements for mating change: the women require of a male the power to provide and protect, and men want from women beauty, both physical and behavioral, as a significator of fertility and health. But in other species, the needs can be very different, and often quite amazing and mysterious, as evinced by the willingness of the male of some spider species to be eaten during mating, the strange and sometimes inexplicable variations of the plumage of the males of some bird species, the huge life-sustaining spermatophores of the male Katydid that make the females of their species do practically whatever it takes to make the male choose them as mates, and so on. This 1987 installment of the BBC's Horizon television series investigates all these things and more as it seeks to remind us that we humans, for all that we are civilized, are in our most basic behavior still passionately as well as practically animals, and celebrates that fact as the most natural thing for us to be (Color, 52 Minutes).
