  • MORNING
  • 6:00 am
    First Peoples [#101H] Americas As humans spread out across the world, their toughest challenge was to colonize the Americas - because of a huge ice sheet blocking their route. It has long been thought that pioneers - known as Clovis people - arrived about 13,000 years ago. But an underwater discovery in Mexico is forcing the story to be re-written. How closely related were the First Americans and today's Native Americans? It's a matter of huge controversy, focused on Kennewick Man. There are very few other skeletons in the world that engender such strong feelings. duration 55:46   STEREO TVPG
  • 7:00 am
    First Peoples [#102H] Africa 200,000 years ago, a new species appeared on the African landscape - Homo sapiens. Scientists imagined eastern Africa was a real-life Garden of Eden, but the latest research suggests we evolved in many places across the continent at the same time. Diversity is etched into our biological blueprint. DNA from a 19th Century African-American slave is forcing geneticists to re-think the origins of our species. The idea is that our ancestors met, mated and hybridized with other types of human in Africa - creating ever greater diversity within our species. duration 55:46   STEREO TVPG
  • 8:00 am
    First Peoples [#103H] Asia/Australia What happened when we expanded out of Africa and into Asia - where did we go and whom did they meet along the way? The latest evidence suggests we left far earlier than previously thought and interbred with a newly-discovered type of ancient human - the Denisovans. The existence of these people was only established four years ago, when geneticists extracted DNA from a tiny fragment of finger bone. And because our ancestors mated with them, their genes found a home within our DNA. More than that, they've helped us survive and thrive. duration 55:46   STEREO TVPG
  • 9:00 am
    First Peoples [#104H] Australia When Homo sapiens arrived in Australia, they were - for the first time - truly alone, surrounded by wildly different flora and fauna. How did they survive and populate a continent? There is a close cultural and genetic link between the First Australians and modern-day Aborigines - the ancient and modern story intersect here as nowhere else in the world. The secret to this continuity is diversity. Intuitively, they found the right balance between being separate and connected. duration 55:46   STEREO TVPG
  • 10:00 am
    First Peoples [#105H] Europe When Homo sapiens turned up in prehistoric Europe, they ran into the Neanderthals. The two types of human were similar enough to interbreed - and they were just as capable at making artifacts. But as more Homo sapiens moved into Europe, there was an explosion of art and symbolic thought. The balance of power had shifted and Neanderthals were overwhelmed. Ever since, we've had Europe and the rest of the world to ourselves. duration 55:16   STEREO TVPG
