In this program, Dr. Alice Roberts charts the advance from Australopithecus toHomo erectus and beyond to demonstrate what the modern skeleton reveals about human evolution. Examining the traits of chimps and an intriguingSahelanthropus hominid fossil, she also discusses the role of bipedalism in the emergence of Homo sapiens. Along the way, viewers learn what running shoes to wear, the purpose of armpit hair, and whether back pain is an inevitable consequence of simply standing up.
