Modern man can cure diseases, communicate at light speed, and even fly through space. But no matter how technologically advanced and civilised modern man becomes, he still has a little bit of the brutish and primitive Neanderthal in him. Up to 4 percent of human DNA is pure Neanderthal, yet the Neanderthal Man disappeared from the earth 39,000 years ago, vanishing into the mist of prehistory, never to be seen again. The question is why? This documentary goes on an exploratory journey of investigation and discovery, uncovering truths about their lives in order to illustrate the Neanderthal's traits, his strengths and weaknesses.

He discovers cows were domesticated 10,000 years ago and descend from the auroch which is now extinct. They organise themselves in herds and a new cow to the herd has a series of movements to establish her dominance in it.
