The rise of man

Thirty million years ago a new group of creatures appeared on planet Earth: the great apes.  From their ranks arose one family, gifted with exceptional skills: our protagonists.  This family would change the face of our world forever. For the very first time in television history, this is the saga of our origins, told through the story of one single family –  an epic journey upon which the latest scientific discoveries shine an exciting new light.
