Really interesting new chapter in the ongoing search for humans' ancestors. The film has a bit of a just-thrown-together quality, possibly accurate. The cave in So. Africa was just discovered about a year ago, and its contents briefly surveyed. I loved that all the people who descended into the cave had to be small women!! It will be fascinating to watch, as time goes on, how the discoveries in the cave begin to fit in with what is already known about the progenitors of homo sapiens.

Subtitles are a very good size, white with no background.

Highly recommend! Very well done & informative - not too technical. The explaination of the 'family tree' made a lot of sense -reasonably explains why we haven't found the 'missing link'.
