Hi, This is Daniel Garber at the Movies for Cultural Mining.com and CIUT 89.5 FM.

A baby’s mind is a tabula rasa, a blank slate waiting to learn what’s right and what’s wrong, what actions are good or bad… at least that’s what we thought.

But a new documentary called Babies: Born to be Good, (to be broadcast on CBC’s The Nature of Things on October 25, 2012), says that’s not necessarily so: humans are born with an innate sense of good and bad, fair play, honesty, and right and wrong, and it takes years of learned behaviour to change these thoughts. Here to explain more about this interesting topic is writer/director Eileen Thalenberg.
