Where did humans evolve and how did we spread around the world? Also, years ago the development of a human embryo from egg to baby was seen as a recap of our billion year history from primal blob to modern human. Join Steve Parker, editor of Evolution: The Whole Story, as he retraces both of these trails and explains the latest findings.
