I watched that show. Pretty amazing, innit?
How wonderful that we're finally climbing out of the anthropoimmured mind-set and becoming aware see other species again.

I haven't watched the show yet. I have it saved though.

I have seen this pop up a few times over the past couple years. Zipf's law. Really cool stuff!

Like all Nova and nature shows, it's only about 50 minutes and covers a fair amount of globe, so you won't get a great depth of knowledge. More of an overview. But they're good starting points, if you want to follow up the actual studies. And they're an entertaining introduction to subject matter that you might not really need any more information.
