PARANORMAL PIGEONS (UK, 2006, 50 min.)
The mystery of how animals navigate over thousands of miles has baffled scientists since ancient times. Today there are several contending theories, but none with a conclusive answer. The humble homing pigeon is key in the race to solve this question. We meet scientists who study the pigeon’s reliance on sight, smell, even magnetism and morphic fields. Finally, we test one of the most outlandish theories of all—that pigeons and other animals have a form of telepathic link between themselves and their homes, an idea advanced by Dr. Rupert Sheldrake. Edited by Matt Meech. Directed by Harry Marshall and produced by Icon Films with Animal Planet and Channel Five. Editing Award.
Introduced by Deborah Rothberg, Public Programs Coordinator, National Museum of Natural History.
