Human Mind TV Programmes

Programme 3 - Making Friends

Wednesday 15 October 2003, 9pm, BBC One

Why is a party one of the most demanding and complex situations the human mind ever has to deal with? This programme investigates the extraordinary way that our minds work to allow us to communicate with other people.

Professor Winston discovers how we recognise people, read their faces and bodies to understand what they’re thinking, and then charm them.

Find out how to tell whether a smile is genuine, what happens when people 'click' with one another, and how to spot when someone's lying.

We follow a young woman as she travels halfway across the world to confront her very own social obstacle course. Can she win over her New Zealand fiancé’s friends and family in the week before she gets married?

See if you can spot a real smile from a fake smile and discover whether you find extroverts or introverts more attractive in our face perception test.
