Ape to Man

Ape to Man is the story of the quest to find the origins of the human race - one that has spanned more than 150 years of obsessive searching.

This film examines the remarkable discoveries which led to our understanding today, as well as the theories which were dismissed at the time, and an incredible hoax which baffled scientists for years.
