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.

  1. i want to learn something instead of being shoveled useless day to day chit chat garbage via tv… please nova , don't be greedy with your knowledge. instead share it with the world so we can continue to evolve… please! lets get out of this twitter age.

  2. 15 friggin' bucks to watch this? After what I've been contributing to support PBS for 30+ years? I don't think so. Perhaps I should stop donating so I can save up to watch your videos on YouTube?
