    约莫440万年前,非洲出现了一个奇妙的物种。该物种住在森林里,双脚能够站立行走于树林间。而事实上,这个同时具有树栖猿猴和双足原始人特性的奇怪物种,正是人类精彩演化历程的起源。这个物种两脚站立的行走方式,相较于森林里的其他物种来说,这其实未必是比较有利的生存条件,他们却在逆境中存活下来了?最新的研究指出一项惊人的发现:在危机四伏的环境下,这个物种的单一伴侣制和双脚行走的生活模式,却正好提供了他们生存上的优势。

    从最早的原始人到当代的人类,我们人类的演化历史其实是由一连串的面对危机和处理危机的方式所组成。第一集将带领观众看人类演化历程,从最早在非洲大陆发现可以直立行走的原始人,到他们的重要后代人种,直到智人离开非洲大陆往他处迁徙。本集将探索这段演化历史所历经的危机和转机。

    About 4.4 million years ago a curious species appeared in Africa. They lived in the forest environment and walked on two legs in trees. In fact, the birth of this strange creature that had physical features of both arboreal apes and bipedal hominines marked the beginning of a grand story of human evolution. The biped style walking might not be so profitable in their competition against other forest dwellers, but they survived. Why? Cutting-edge research points out a surprising reason; in an environmental crisis, their life style, monogamy and bipedal walks happened to give them an edge...

    From the first hominids to modern humans, our evolutionary history has been a series of crises and stunning comebacks. The first episode looks back at the story of human evolution mostly unfolding in Africa from the first appearance of hominid walkers through some important hominid offspring species to the Homo sapiens' migration out of Africa, exploring many accidents and lucky breaks they went through.

    • 远大的扩张旅程

      远大的扩张旅程

      至今地球有76亿人口。我们的智人祖先离开非洲、往外迁徙之后,便以惊人的速度扩张。一路上他们必须克服种种危机,包含海上巨浪和酷寒。考古证据显示,人类在大约四万年前便已经可以使用船只从事远洋渔业、甚至在巅峰的冰河时期居住在北极地区。究竟史前人类在当时如何克服地理和气候的障碍呢?
      研究人员也着手进行实验来解释这个谜团。透过模拟利用当时的简易工具和材料,研究人员透过实验来验证史前人类如何远渡重洋、并定居在酷寒的极地。史前人类的冒险精神和丰富的创造力即是他们的存活本领。
      在第三集,日本国立科学博物馆的海部阳介教授指出:日本考古学界研究发现,史前旧石器时代人类进入日本列岛的路径其中之一为约3万年前跨越黑潮的「台湾冲绳海路」。近年来冲绳列岛陆续出土许多两万多年前人类骨骸,科学家根据动物分布、海流、以及旧石器时代人类遗迹、人骨的DNA及人类社会行为等等因素推测,3万年前在冲绳列岛上史前人类,很有可能从台湾出发、航行迁徙,而后居住在此。在本集中将会重现这段远征,探索这段智人迁徙的惊险旅程。

      Today 7.6 billion people live across this planet. After coming out of Africa, our Homo sapiens ancestors expanded their territories at an astonishing pace. On the way they had to overcome huge obstacles; the rough ocean waves and the extreme cold. Archaeological evidence shows that humans already used boats for pelagic fishing some 40 thousand years ago and also that they inhabited in the Arctic regions during the height of the glacial period. How could the prehistoric humans get over the geographical and climatic barriers in so early days?

      Some researchers are conducting experiments to solve the mystery. By using the simple tools and materials available at the time, researchers are conducting experiments to verify how the prehistoric people could cross open seas or settle in the frigid Arctic. The keys were their adventurous spirits and inventive faculty. Episode 3 explores the turbulent journeys Homo sapiens accomplished in the process of their expansion across the globe.

    • 最强劲敌

      最强劲敌

      大约20到30万年前,我们的智人祖先在非洲进行演化的历程。随即有部分的智人离开这块最早孕育出人类的非洲大陆,来到了今日的中东地带。在那里他们遇见了同样是人属的尼安德特人。尼安德特人算是智人的近亲,从40万年前共同的祖先演化而来,尼安德特人早在智人之前便遍布于西欧亚大陆。他们是有力的狩猎者,肌肉发达、体格健壮、能使用语言、智力不亚于现代人类。然而,尼安德特人却在约4万年前绝迹,只有智人存活到今日。是什么样原因导致这样的结果呢?科学上最新的研究发现人类得以生存的原因与智人所发展出的群体大小息息相关。在过去,尼安德特人一直被视为比智人更笨,所以才会无法与新物种竞争,而导致灭绝。然而,人类学家和考古学家却指出,尼安德特人不仅拥有强壮的身形、脑袋也更大、生活也有一定水准的复杂度。这项发现却让尼安德特人的灭绝成为难解的谜团。

      在第二集中,我们将追寻智人在欧亚大陆的脚步,看他们如何面对竞争对手尼安德特人,探索这两种物种命运不同的关键因素。最后观众也会发现,身为现代人的他们体内仍然或多或少留着尼安德特人的基因。

      About 200 to 300 thousand years ago, our species Homo sapiens evolved in Africa, and soon after that, part of them traveled out of the cradle continent into today's Middle East. There they came across another Homo species known as Neanderthals. Neanderthals were the closest relative to Homo sapiens. Having evolved from a common ancestor about 400 thousand years ago, Neanderthals had spread in West Eurasia before Homo sapiens. They were powerful hunters with muscular, stocky built physique, capable of speech, and no less intelligent than modern humans. However, their species disappeared about 40 thousand years ago, and only our species has survived to this day. Why? Latest research attributes our survival to the size of groups Homo sapiens could developed.

      Neanderthals were previously believed to have been dumber than Homo sapiens and thus succumbed to competition with the newly arrived species. However, anthropology and archaeology have revealed that not only strong bodies Neanderthals also had large brains and certain levels of sophistication in their life styles. This knowledge, however, deepened the mystery why Neanderthals died off. Episode 2 explores this mystery, tracing the footsteps of Homo sapiens in their new home Eurasia, looking at how they may have encountered their rival Neanderthals, and watching what decided the fates of the two human species. And in the end viewers will also come to know the fact that although fragmentarily, some Neanderthal genes have been living on in their own DNA.
