Three-part documentary series and interactive web documentary explores the unlikely survival and the miraculous emergence of Homo sapiens as the world's only global species. Ancient climate research has revealed that we evolved during the most volatile era since the extinction of the dinosaurs. Just like the many other kinds of human who once shared our world, we should have died away. Instead, our species survived to populate every corner of the planet, against all the odds.
