"A species Odyssey" describes the most extraordinary of adventures: this history of the Human Race from the first primate seven million years ago to Homo sapiens. The aim of these 2x52' programmes is to allow the general public to witness the epic tale of our origins, showing crucial developments (walking upright, the first tools, fire, language, etc.) This programmes takes us back in time, restoring our ancestors to life, mixing 3D animation and fictional reconstructions.
