Nearly half a million years ago the most advanced human the world has seen is roaming Europe. Strong and powerful, Homo heidelbergensis are fierce hunters, use sophisticated tools and live in close knit family groups. They resemble humans both physically and behaviourally - yet something crucial is missing.
This is a journey of life, death, and drama from millions of years ago. Spanning both the immense time-scale of evolutionary change, and the intimacy of individual lives, Walking with Cavemen brings the presenter and viewer eye-to-eye with our ancient ancestors. State-of-the-art special effect techniques bring to life scientifically accurate reconstructions of our human ancestors, while computer graphics and innovative digital technology recreate the environment in which the dramas of our ape-men unfold.
An extraordinary new breed of ape-men called Homo egaster has taken over Africa. They are expert tool makers, food-finders and travellers, but where they differ most from their predecessors is in their communal lifestyle.
