Vet School academic to feature on BBC Two’s Horizon
12 June 2013
Dr John Bradshaw, Visiting Fellow and Honorary Director of the Anthrozoology Institute in the School of Veterinary Sciences, will feature on BBC Two's Horizon tomorrow [Thursday 13 June] discussing the secret life of the domestic cat .
The secret life of the domestic cat is revealed in a unique experiment by BBC documentary makers and scientists, including Dr John Bradshaw, Visiting Fellow and Honorary Director of the Anthrozoology Institute in the School of Veterinary Sciences, with surprising results.
As part of one of the largest ever research projects into domestic cat behaviour, a team from the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) - supported by BBC Two Horizon and the Universities of Bristol and Lincoln - tracked dozens of pet cats over several 24-hour periods using specially-designed collar GPS devices and tiny “cat cams”.
Dr Bradshaw will be interviewed about the documentary tomorrow on BBC Breakfast, BBC Radio 2's Breakfast Show, the Today programme, BBC Radio 5 Live, BBC Radio 2's Jeremy Vine, BBC Points West and BBC South Today.
Horizon – The secret life of the cat will be broadcast on BBC Two on Thursday 13 June at 9 pm.
Horizon - Little cat diaries will be broadcast on BBC Two on Friday 14 June at 10 pm.
A trailer for the programme is available to watch on YouTube.
