JOURNEY

Did you know you are African? No, really.
It might come as a huge surprise
but in fact we all are.

I'm loving a new series on BBC Two
about the origins of humans.

In the Incredible Human Journey Dr Alice Roberts
travels the globe to discover the amazing story
our species. In the ultimate travel story,
Dr Roberts crosses the globe to find out how
our ancestors colonised the planet.


She examines bones, stones and the latest
scientific theories to discover how one small
group of people left Africa, their descendents
crossing deserts, oceans and mountains,
surviving an Ice Age and overcoming
the Neanderthals to populate
every part of the world.

On the way she also examines how our skin
colour and other distinctive features
evolved across each of the continents
to produce the global diversity
of peoples today.
