This is a 2011 documentary produced for "NOVA Science Now" by PBS.

Great DVD. A bird with an extensive vocabulary, dolphins asked to create their own routine, and a dog who can recognize over 1000 names.

I'm glad to see that they are now doing more and more experiments that prove all sorts of creatures can think, remember, problem solve, use tools and are self-aware.
