NOVA: Dawn of Humanity

NOVA and National Geographic present exclusive access to an astounding discovery of ancient fossil human ancestors. Deep in a South African cave, a special team of experts has brought to light an unprecedented wealth of fossils belonging to a crucial gap in the record of our origins that spans the transition between the ape-like australopithecines (such as the famous Lucy) and the earliest members of the human family. At the center of the discovery is paleoanthropologist Lee Berger, a character brimming with enthusiasm and opinions, whose claims have stirred long controversy in the contentious field of human origins. Join NOVA to solve a two million year-old ""crime scene"" and dig into extraordinary new clues about what made us human.

Not to be missed.
Review by Weckket on 07/17/20 review stating Not to be missed.
Wonderfully produced and presented. New information which will change your thinking, and raise questions not before thought of. Requires a totally different way of looking at the subject, and also what the factors were that have brought us here. And requires suspension of much received wisdom as to what may have made it possible for us be on the planet up to now.
