The Earth has witnessed the birth, growth and disappearance of numerous species. But one species, Homo sapiens, set off to conquer the world. Man hunted and domesticated animals, built cities, developed complex civilizations, and also created war in his quest to dominate throughout time.
Through CGI, recreations and expert interviews, National Geographic presents an epic account of 8,000 years in mankind's history, from man's emergence on the planet through his continued quest to dominate the world.
Special features: photo gallery; bonus interviews.
I watch a great deal of documentaries for pleasure and for information. This is one of my favorites, it is quite informative and it is made so that people with limited knowledge can keep up without being confused. The bonus episode that is included is about the discovery of H. floresiensis, which is a human ancestor that was around 3ft 6inches or so as an adult. The bonus episode provides great info both for those which are and are not familiar with human evolution. This documentary would be a great tool for a high school science class.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
