Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter

The human face is what attracts and repels humans meeting other humans. This attraction is mysterious. This four-volume program from The Learning Channel investigates many aspects of the human face, from beauty to facial expression. John Cleese acts as narrator and host to a number of guests who discuss the power of the face. Skits and personal interviews highlight the points made in the production. The four episodes include Secrets of the Face, The Endlessly Fascinating Face, Does Beauty Matter?, and Famous Faces. The episode The Endlessly Fascinating Face - which has also been issued under the alternate title Here's Looking at You - talks about the uniqueness of the human face, and how it connotes a singular psychological, emotional and cultural identity. Subtopics include the world's first facial transplant, and the face's role in our recognition of other individuals.
