Too assertive
12 June 2013 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

It's modern, it's fresh, it doesn't have boring moments, but... it's too much assertive and does not count fresh and relevant possibilities. This documentary was made in 2009, new data was available in 2010. Neanderthals interbred after all with homo sapiens (conclusion by Neanderthal genome Project), and if the Chinese Homo Erectus indeed is not a direct ancestor of Chinese people, indeed as modern humans have in their and traces of Neanderthal genome, Asian people and more have also Denisovans' ancestry.

It's too focused and enfathised only on available data (at the time the documentary was made) and does not focus on reasonable hypothesis. Not to say is self-centered on Alice Roberts's point of view. It abuses on a linear logic when the result of that logic excludes possibilities outside its own realm. The result could not be scientific, like it wasn't when Neanderthal-Sapiens interbreed hypothesis was excluded just because the majority didn't thought so.

Although it's a fresh light palaeoanthropology documentary it's has a biased point of view.
