How did the human race populate the world? THE JOURNEY OF MAN examines the latest in genetic evidence to tell the story of the great migrations of man through history. Dr. Spencer Wells travels to Africa, Australia, Siberia, the Middle East, the Himalayas and the United States to piece together our history with clues gathered along the way. Astonishing research indicates that our family trees can be traced back to just one man who lived as little as 60,000 years ago. The program synthesizes the latest evidence from many different scientific fields - genetics, linguistics, anthropology and paleoclimatology - to explain our exceptional survival against all odds.
