Sexual Imperative, The (3 Parts)

Synopsis
A six-part series exploring the natural history of sex, comparing human and animal sexuality, with two programmes on each videotape.
Vol 1: 1) The Importance of Sex: explores the fundamentals of sex - what it is and why it evolved, the need for choosing the best possible mate. 2) The Sex Contract: looks at numbers of partners - why some animals have many mates, others only one.
Vol 2: 3) A Time and a Place: looks at what triggers reproduction. 4) From Conception to Birth: how sperm and egg meet; the development of the offspring.
Vol 3: 5) The Young Ones: parents as provides - how the young are successfully reared. 6) Sex and the Human Animal: why humans are capable of being consistently sexually active, and where human sexuality places us in the global picture of nature.
