The Journey of Man is a documentary that talks about our evolution, our recent history, and how we came to be to the way we are today. It looks at the Y chromosome, that’s passed down from male to male, and tracks the marker mutations to map our ancestors’ journey. It’s how we conquered the Earth in just the last 59,000 years. This informative film, full of surprising news, is based on the work of Spencer Wells, who is both innovative scientist and an enthusiastic host. He and his crew scour the world for indigenous people with deep roots in one place, asking for samples of DNA to test, in order to piece together our “big family” genetic tree.
