Discovery Channel Slates Its Own Human Evolution Special

Oct 2, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Discovery Channel will try to go rival History one better, with a two-hour special and one-hour roundtable about a new skeleton find, dubbed “Ardi,” that researchers say is the oldest-ever-found human ancestor, reports B&C.

The find is the subject of an article in the journal “Science.” The special will air Oct. 11.

History drew more than 2 million viewers in May with its special “The Link” about a 47-million-year-old skeleton, called “Ida,” which was touted as the missing link in human evolution.

  1. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.
