    Did anyone watch the wildlife programme on the BBC last night about bears ? I think it was called "Bears in the Wood". Our cat walked into the room just as the programme was starting, and he was enthralled ! He sat there watching intently, about 3 feet from the plasma screen for well over half an hour. I've noticed our cats watching TV before when we had a 28" widescreen TV, but never for as long and as intently as this.

    It was a great programme. If you didn't see it, you missed something really good, especially if you could view it on a big plasma screen :smashin:

    Interesting.

    Since getting a Viera we've noticed that our dog, which previously appeared to be completely blind to a 36" 100hz CRT, has started taking an interest in what's on the screen.

    Any animal vision experts care to comment? :)

    Hahaha..... this is excellent!!

    My cat first started to prick his ears up when I installed my surround sound speakers but now I have my plasma he does quite often sit and watch the TV and it's not just wildlife programs.

    The plasma must look like a window or something as cats often sit up and stare out of windows :)

    :laugh: What amazed me was that at one point a big grizzly bear was headed straight for the camera, and the darned cat just put his hears down, dropped his head a little, and stood his ground. Which is all quite amazing for a cat that (although he weighs nearly 20 lbs) is normally afraid of his own shadow :)

    It was a great proggy, excellent camera work.
    Cats are stupid but nice ;)
    It could be something to do with the lack of flicker on Plasma over CRT that makes it more realistic for the animals.

    Or (excuse my ignorance) due to the non-interlaced nature of plasma? Do cats eyes work faster than ours and are therefore unable to properly reconstruct the intended image?

    Yeah I saw it too. Great.

    Was it an episode or a single programme?

    I think Mr Bailey has it, any Hitachi/cat owners able to add anything to this? Mind you, they refresh faster than a TV, so it might be marginal what it would prove.
