Storyline

Scientists from the mid-nineteenth century have searched for the fossil remains of the "missing link" in evolution - the half-man, half-ape that would explain where mankind came from. But over the last century and a half, it has been the idea of what a missing link is that has evolved. The history of this scientific quest - peopled with fanatics, frauds, amateurs, professionals, the lucky, the unlucky, the unfairly neglected and the undeservedly praised - is the subject of this documentary. Reenactments depict scientists making their discoveries and then stretch back hundreds of thousands, even millions, of years to depict the typical lives of our human and human-like ancestors. Interviews with leading scientists fill in the details. Written by J. Spurlin

Well made and very informative
7 January 2009 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

This History Channel documentary focuses on the hundreds of years of study on the evolution of man from the primate roots. Including information on Darwin & his Origin of Species, the Neanderthal findings, and the search for the missing link, 'Ape to Man' (2005) is a good study on the history of the search for the answer to man's beginnings.

While it may not introduce a lot of information to someone with a comprehensive knowledge on the subject, it's a great start for those interested in the findings and general history of our evolution.

Give it a look if the subject is of interest to you.

Final Verdict: 9/10.
