Blink Films is to produce two documentaries for PBS. The 2×60 minute docs will follow the history of cats and dogs and provide a glimpse into their secret lives.


As part of its NOVA strand, Dog Tales and Cat Tales  will include interviews with geneticists, experts in animal behaviour, archaeologists, vets and scientists to explore the history of the two species—from wild animals tens of thousands of years ago to today’s domesticated pets—and in particular how their relationship with humans has shaped their evolution and behaviours, as well as our own.


Dan Chambers, co-Founder and Creative Director at Blink Films said: “Despite humans looking after cats and dogs as pets and close companions for thousands of years, there is still a huge amount most of us don’t know about them, and about how we have both shaped our lives with each other during that time. These programmes will be a fascinating and revealing look at the closest relationships we have with animals.”
