How exceptional are humans and how did we become different from the other animals? The presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Inside Science explores the latest research that reveals the extent to which behaviours once thought exclusively human are also found in other species. He focuses on different animals’ use of tools, including fire, and the prevalence of non-reproductive sexual acts; he also explains how evolution allowed us to develop a uniquely complex culture.
