The Human Spark (1 of 3) Becoming Us
The Human Spark is a three-part series to be broadcast on PBS in 2010. Alan Alda begins a quest to uncover what makes humans unique since the first recognizable human walked on the Earth. Why did six million years of evolution make us human? How did our brain evolve?
In this first episode Alda explores the world of extinct cousins in Europe, the Neanderthals, and asks how we evolved into us and flourished while the others didn't. And learn how our Paleolithic geniuses made tools (I'm going to try to make a hand axe at home, if I find an obsidian).
Aired January 6th, 2010 on PBS.
