Witness life, death and drama from millions of years ago, and see the incredible history of human evolution unfold. This unique series tells the story of how a powerful cocktail of distinctive traits combined to produce an animal that came to dominate the world. That animal is, of course, us: Homo sapiens, and this is the chance to journey with our ancestors.
State-of-the-art special effects, and pioneering prosthetic make-up techniques bring to life scientifically accurate reconstructions of our human ancestors, while computer graphics and innovative digital technology recreate the environment in which they lived.
'Walking with Cavemen' offers the chance to explore our pre-historic past, going to the heart of the action and revealing just how much of our ape-men ancestors lives, on in us today.
See what key traits combined to make us into the people we are today: how bi-pedalism opened the door to an astonishing set of new skills, how a scavenging generalist was better equipped to survive through time than a thoughtful specialist. Then witness how we begin to take an interest in each other's thoughts and feelings, and finally, uncover the most pivotal factor in our unique success: imagination.
