BBC 1 visited the Riseholme campus to film for the new series of Bang Goes the Theory. The BBC crew have been working with Daniel Mills and colleagues including Sian Ryan and Anna Wilkinson for a programme that will test dogs’ intelligence and look at how they learn.
Presenters Dallas Campbell and Liz Bonnin appeared alongside Daniel as he worked with several dogs and their owners to tight timescales, to see how well the dogs would learn a series of tasks. The University team then accompanied the BBC to a dog show, to complete the filming.
