In dusty low mounts of the north of Kenya, the perfectly conserved skeleton of a dead boy was found makes 1,4 million years: "homo erectus". The lost link was not what the scientists esperaban. The "homo erectus" it was not a hairy monkey with human face, but all the opposite. It had our aspect, but with the mental development of a boy of 1 year of age. This hominid able to walk raised had become a great predator.
The 6 first documentary ones are of the BBC and respond to numerous questions on our evolution: Who were our ancestors? When they walked for the first time on the Earth? What other homønidos coexisted with them? Why survived our ancestors whereas other homønidos were extinguished?
Reconstructing the crucial moments of our evolution, 'APE MAN' our trip of 5 million years vividly answers these questions when recreating from the origins of our species to the appearance of the man. This extraordinary history has been reconstructed by the scientists from numerous findings of fossils, prehistoric paintings, stone tools and rest of old genetic material. Step by step, the surprising drama of our history is kept awake. We will be witnesses of the old pain and fear of the man before the brutality of the life, and its love and joy before its beauty.
The 4 documentary rest are of History Channel and present/display the incredible history of the human evolution through the last progresses, interviews with scientists and anthropologists, and amazing simulations by computer. The series is presented/displayed by Walter Cronkite and rolled in Africa.
