    Dancing in the Dark: The Intelligence of Bees

    "Bees are remarkable among insects. They can count, remember human faces, and communicate through dance routines performed entirely in the dark. But are they intelligent? Even creative? Bee aficionado Stephen Humphrey, along with a hive of leading bee researchers and scientists, investigates the mental lives of bees.
    In summer of 2011, Stephen Humphrey went out west to spend time with his family - and one million bees. Stephen's mother and step-father are bee-keepers. Their bee-yards, 22 of them, are spread across two counties, in Northern Alberta. Every morning, six days a week, Stephen - a notoriously late sleeper, was up bright and early, doing his best to get "Bee Ready". Off he'd go, by truck or by foot, to the 'honey bee' hives."
