This epic-length, critically acclaimed documentary miniseries from the BBC charts the origins of mankind, and investigates the colossal, centuries-long journeys undertaken by homo sapiens that ultimately brought them to modern civilization. Drawing from a wealth of scientific research, Dr. Alice Roberts, an anthropologist, author, anatomist, osteoarchaeologist, and educator based at the University of Bristol in England, begins with the established idea of an individual group of men and women emerging from Africa 60,000 years ago, and surviving inhospitable territory as they crossed over into the unknown. Roberts then asks key questions about how the early individuals managed to survive, which factors yielded differing ethnicities, and what in particular ensured the preservation of the entire human race. The program argues that early homo sapiens essentially took five routes that carried them in different directions around the world, leading to the creation of many diverse people groups and cultures, though Roberts also suggests that men and women around the world are much more alike than different. This collection contains the entire series as originally aired on British television.
