We're going to be watch "Becoming Human", a NOVA special from PBS on human evolution. Specifically, we are watching the first part of the three-part series, "First Steps". This event is a (belated) celebration of Darwin Day, which was last Friday, the 12th of February. I hope you'll join us for this fascinating look at our evolutionary history.
Where did we come from? What makes us human? An explosion of recent discoveries sheds light on these questions, and NOVA's comprehensive, three-part special, "Becoming Human," examines what the latest scientific research reveals about our hominid relatives.
A more detailed description of the program is available at the NOVA link.
