Abstract:
Explores new evidence regarding our early hominid relatives. Becoming human brings early hominids to life, examining how they lived and how we became the creative and adaptable modern humans of today. Featuring interviews with world-renowned scientists and stunning computer-generated animation, the show offers a vivid picture of human evolution. In the first episode "Selam," the amazingly complete remains of a 3 million year-old child, packed with clues to why we split from the apes, came down from the trees, and started walking upright; The second episode investigates the riddle of "Turkana Boy" -- a tantalizing fossil of Homo erectus, the first ancestor to leave Africa and colonize the globe; The final episode explores the spread of Homo Sapiens across the globe and investigates whether modern humans interbred with Neanderthals or exterminated them.
