Click here and discover all about the art of "the orderly British queue"! Premiered in Canada on 18 June on the Documentary Channel.
Have you been queuing up somewhere lately? Felt stressed, irritated or bored? We lose precious time to say nothing of our temper and sense of humour in queues or in phone line-ups!
Which queue to choose – a long single file or several shorter ones? Can we leave a queue and hope to claim "our" place afterwards? And never go for the "fast" check-out line, they are slower (proved by maths)!
Let’s check out how humans behave in all sorts of queues. Neat and orderly British queues, the more chaotic ones in India, quirky Montreal queues ... Are line-ups just part of the human condition – or can we find the secret to “The Taming of the Queue”?
"Like any film by Freed, The Taming of the Queue is a must see... a film you will want to watch again and share with friends." Richard Lanoie, The Reviews Page
