The Power of Music

 

Jane Hanson investigates the ability of music to improve the wellbeing of people and discovers the exact science behind the physical and psychological effect of sounds and music.

Did you know that music can have a decisive influence on what you buy in a shop or how much you spend in a restaurant?

Hanson also discovers that there is a large new market for pan-pipe players and why police are playing classical music in the metro system in the North-East of England.

Can playing calming music increase milk yield in cows? And what effect do Indian ragas have on plant growth?

These are just some of the many unexpected uses of music which Jane Hanson explores in the four-part series The Power of Music.
