Hearing, sight, smell, touch and taste are all senses that we use to link us with the world which surrounds us. In this documentary Dr Kevin Fong takes us back through 40 years worth of BBC horizon footage to help us understand what science has allowed humans to learn about our tools of connection with the world.
In the film we look at how easily our senses can be fooled into giving us a false perception of reality and how new technology is being developed to essentially emulate the human senses. There a number of exciting technologies that are coming about in the near future to help people who have problems with certain senses which are explored in detail here.
