Unlike most of the animal kingdom, we humans cooperate outside of the family unit. This episode looks at how we behave in groups and puts our notions of hierarchy to the test. We meet a group of workers from a small company that come to the country house for what they believe is a team-building weekend. Not one of them was prepared for the news they received once they arrive. Dr. Michael Mosley and guest experts Dr. Nadine Tchelebi and Patricia Marks examine group dynamics and discover some fascinating results. What happens when disaster strikes? Do we pull together, or do we fall apart?
