Abstract:

In this episode, Last Human Standing explores the origins of "us"--Where modern humans and our capacities for art, invention, and survival came from, and what happened when we encountered the mysterious Neanderthals. Crucial new evidence comes from the recent decoding of the Neanderthal genome. Did modern humans interbreed with Neanderthals? Exterminate them? Becoming Human examines why "we" survived while our other ancestral cousins - including Indonesia's bizarre 3-foot-high "Hobbit"--died out. And NOVA poses the intriguing question: are we still evolving today? Distributed by PBS Distribution.
