I mentioned somewhere that I have spent a considerable amount of time in the past few weeks watching debates and documentaries on YouTube, well this is one of my favourite series. “Origins of Us” is a three part series by English TV Presenter Alice Roberts Ph. D. In the series, Roberts goes into intricate details about the family tree and history of us (Homo Sapiens) and the differences and similarities with our distant cousins and ancestors. Using very simple (yet ingenious and highly memorable) tests, by visiting some of our earliest stomping grounds, and showing us fossils and other scientific evidence, Roberts illustrates and explores numerous aspects of our evolution and adaption.
