Humans have long been thought of as something special and unique, but it turns out we are not the only ones. In the past 30 to 40 thousand years, humans have been the only species on our planet. However, in the time before that there were at least four distinct species of human that scientists now know about thanks to well preserved DNA samples.
These other forms of humanity have all since disappeared from existence, but they have left a lasting impression on us all. In Horizon’s latest documentary, Alice Roberts sets out to explore these fascinating discoveries and how genetics has completely changed our understanding of human evolution.
Alice will be taking an in-depth look at how our ancestors interacted with these other hominid species and how those interactions shape who we are today. She also dives into some of the new pieces in the ever-expanding puzzle of our family tree. This documentary is sure to provide an interesting and informative look into this fascinating field of research and our place within it.
So if you’re looking for an exciting new way to explore human origins and learn more about our species’ history, then make sure to watch Horizon’s latest documentary. It promises to be an incredible journey full of surprises!
