The "Becoming Human" series discloses important facts and has several interweaving coherent narratives going back at least 6 million years in human evolution.

This material is great for biology courses and a must see for those interested in human natural and social history.

Comments about PBS NOVA: Becoming Human Unearthing Our Earliest Ancestors DVD:

Buy this 3-part series an educate yourself and your family. It's science made enjoyable - so enjoyable and riveting you can watch it over and over and over again and so inexpensive for the value you get. No ideology here - just facts and scientifically shaped opinion you can understand and believe.

Why not a set?

By Professor and student

from Akron, OH

Comments about PBS NOVA: Becoming Human Unearthing Our Earliest Ancestors DVD:

Saw this on TV and expected to see a three program set at a reasonable price. It appears the 2nd program ISN'T EVEN OFFERED. The series is an extended look at history and incomplete without all three episodes.

interesting and educational

Comments about PBS NOVA: Becoming Human Unearthing Our Earliest Ancestors DVD:

As a biology teacher, I thought this video might bore some of my students. They usually get more excited by living animals, not talk of fossils. This video does an amazing job of keeping the information interesting. It's great to use when covering Earth's History and Evolution. It explains why humans have evolved some of the characteristics we now have based on natural selection in the environments of the different times. It uses computer graphics to realistically show what these humans looked like. Very well done.
