The Nature of Things

About the Show

  • TV
  • ONLINE

One of the most successful series in the history of Canadian television, THE NATURE OF THINGS is hosted by world-renowned scientist, author and environmentalist David Suzuki. Each week, this influential program presents documentaries driven by a scientific understanding of the world, with stories ranging from wildlife to health and medicine, and from the environment to the latest technology.

This fall, THE NATURE OF THINGS continues its exploration of wildlife with a look at dolphins, owls, white wolves and foxes.  It also examines the brain's way of healing, ADHD, PTSD, decodes body language, explores the science of music and uncovers fascinating never-before-revealed details about the daily life of Pompeii's citizens.
