How Earth Made Us: Deep Earth
Explore the relationship between the deep Earth and the development of human civilization. The exploration reveals that throughout history our ancestors were strangely drawn to fault lines; areas which connect the surface with the deep interior of the planet. These fault lines gave access to important resources, but also brought with them great danger.

Sir David Attenborough looks at how the curious minds of orangutans and crows helped them become inventive.Orangutans are clever tool users but strangely such skills remained undiscovered for centuries.
