Neanderthal (00:00)

FREE PREVIEW

In 2010 there was an incredible breakthrough: the Neanderthal genome was first decoded. The greatest surprise was that most modern humans have inherited Neanderthal DNA, and that there is around 2% of their DNA inside everyone from outside sub-Saharan Africa. These genes have helped shape modern humans into what we are today. So what kind of people were our ancient ancestors? This two-part series investigates what they looked like and what would have happened when we met them. It turns out that what we thought we knew about them is wrong. They weren't hunched, grunting, knuckle-dragging ape-men at all. In a reconstructed, imaginary confrontation, we discover they were faster, smarter, better looking - and much more like us than we ever thought.
