Anthropologists once emphasized "man the hunter" as the driving force in human evolution, but now they believe it's the gathering of vegetables by women that enabled our greatest leaps. In this program, Dr. Alice Roberts explains how our ancestors’ search for food has driven the way we look and behave today, from the shape of our face to relationships and gender roles. Visiting hunter-gatherers in Tanzania, she also investigates what type of diet we are designed for, and whether humans were meant to be monogamous.
