Experiment on the ultrasonic hearing of pet cats on TV

21 October 2014

With equipment and training from Professor Gareth Jones and PhD student Andy Wakefield, the makers of the recent BBC series 'Cat Watch 2014: The New Horizon Experiment' successfully conducted an experiment whereby cats were shown to locate a hidden speaker emitting ultrasonic mouse calls undetectable to their owners.

It was first broadcast on 7th Oct on BBC2 but it is still available on BBC iPlayer for another few weeks. http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episodes/b04lcqvq
