Chicago Science Field Trips Message Board › The Human Family Tree & Human Planet (documentaries)
I'm not making this a meetup, but thought it's worth posting as a message.
The Zygon Center presents two documentaries exploring our contemporary cultural diversity in the context of our evolutionary roots and our urban environment.
Narrated by Kevin Bacon, National Geographic’s The HumanFamily Tree takes Dr. Spencer Wells and the Genographic Project to Queens, New York to trace the genetic journeys of urban dwellers. How do our rich cultural identities and ethnic ancestries relate to the deep history of our human evolution and migrations? What makes each of our stories unique, and what do we share in common with our neighbors?
Narrated by John Hurt, the BBC’s Human Planet: Cities examines the complex ecology of urban life around the world through the eyes of conservation biologists, city planners, and environmental advocates. How do we coexist with other species in our cities, and how can we create more sustainable and biodiverse urban communities?
