Prehistoric Autopsy

Synopsis
Using cutting-edge technology and the specialised knowledge of world-class experts, this original series attempts a science and television first. Gathering all the disparate, fragmentary evidence of three of the most significant prehistoric ancestors together, the team completely rebuilds their bodies, revealing how they moved, how they lived and shows how much like us they were. Each programme focuses on one hominid: Australopithecus afarensis, Homo erectus and Homo neanderthalensis.
