[Unearthing Our Earliest Ancestors]Streaming Video - 2009
Part 1, "First Steps, " examines the factors that caused us to split from the other great apes. The program explores the fossil of "Selam, " also known as "Lucy's Child." Paleoanthropologist Zeray Alemseged spent five years carefully excavating the sandstone-embedded fossil. NOVA's cameras are there to capture the unveiling of the face, spine, and shoulder blades of this 3.3 million-year-old fossil child. And NOVA takes viewers "inside the skull" to show how our ancestors' brains had begun to change from those of the apes.
