9pm, The Raft - Storyville, BBC 4. Before there was Love Island and Big Brother .... there was The Raft.

In 1973 Mexican anthropologist Santiago Genovés set out to test a hypothesis. He had been struck by the connection between violence and sexual rivalry amongst monkeys.

But would this apply to humans too? To find out Genovés asked a boat builder to make a 12 x 7 metre raft called the Acali on which he planned to sail with 10 sexually attractive young people across the Atlantic from the Canary Islands to Mexico.

He yearned to discover what humanity must do to live in peace. It didn’t quite work out that way though. He thought it would be valuable scientific work, but the media just labelled it Sex Raft and his university disowned the project.

(Whatever floats your boat)
