Program Description

Scientists follow the trace of DNA to demonstrate how the origin of human beings can be traced back to the same place. A number of graphs and maps show the route that the first humans followed to get to Asia through Africa and the Middle East. See how ancient climatic changes which took place 80,000 years ago affected evolutionary patterns and migration. Out of Africa: The Real Eve presents the forensic evidence showing that all of us could be the descendants of the same genetic mother in Africa: the origin of man.
