"I like how this video was put together. It seems to be a great introduction to Human Evolution. It explains some of the roles that Geologists, archaeologists and paleoanthro-pologists have contributed to evidence of human evolution. They have skeletons that looked something like apes but walked upright like us. The video explains how they determine the age of the fossils, and these creatures that lived millions of years ago etc. It examines the development of fossils which gives us insight into human adaptation and evolution.
They even examine the "fossils throat region" of these upright walking creatures and reconstruct it based on anatomy which may show they evolved into what we have today, that allowed us to speak this way."
1st of a good 3 part documentary

"First of all you should understand that this is intended as an introduction to human evolution. It`s not the type of documentary
that you see on the history channel. Those are intended to both inform and entertain. This is strictly for information, they make
no effort to entertain anyone. There are no flashy CGI special effects. It simply tells what we know (or think we know) about
early man and human evolution. There is little in the way of speculation and no attempt at drama.
Great for high school classes or anyone who is interested in what is known about early man.

"The first DVD on Just The Facts, Prehistoric Man deals with the begiining of Human Evolution. And in doing so the DVD starts off explaining how we think we know the things we do. They talk about how fossils are found, how we know their age, how to look at and understand what the fossils are telling us, and so on. When did man first start to walk? When did man start to evolution a voice? When did man start making tools? Building fires? Using the TV remote? Eh, never mind that last part. You get the idea. This DVD is a must for the series - if you can only buy one out of all three of the DVDs, I would strongly suggest this one."
