Psychologist Mark Coulson links together a series of sequences illustrating how we recognise emotions. Looks at the way facial expressions have evolved and asks how good we are a communicating emotion through our faces. Uses the work of an actress, a cartoonist and an artist to discuss and illustrate the six basic emotions of fear, anger, happiness, sadness, surprise and disgust.
