In 2007, Nobel Prize-winning scientist James Watson was quoted referring to research suggesting black people were less intelligent than other races. Watson's comments were condemned by many - but not by all. In this program, Somali-born English journalist Rageh Omaar sets out to find out the truth, meeting scientists who believe the research supports the view that races can be differentiated as well as those who vehemently oppose this view. By daring to ask the difficult questions, Omaar is able to explore the myths about race and IQ and reveal what he thinks are important lessons for society.

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.

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.
