Within the human body lies evidence of how we evolved away from the early apes to become the most successful species on Earth. But each anatomical advantage that put us ahead of predators and competitors came at a cost, which many of us are still paying today. Bad backs, painful childbirth, and impacted wisdom teeth are all by-products of our evolutionary triumph. In this three-part series, anatomist and physical anthropologist Dr. Alice Roberts reveals the key adaptations to the human body that led to our dominance, and how these play out in our lives today.
A BBC Production. 3-part series, 52 minutes each.
