The Neanderthal Code
Season 1  |  Episode 2  |  ABC  |  March 4, 2010

Using dramatic reconstructions, interviews and CGI graphics the programs reconstruct the world of the Neanderthal. Is it possible that through the interbreeding of Neanderthals and Homo sapiens, every person of European descent may have a little bit of Neanderthal in them? And that Neanderthal genes might show up in fundamental traits, like big brains and sociability, that we think of as particularly human?
