Cassius is very interested in cavemen right now. His dad rented the DVD Quest for Fire. “Haven’t you seen that?” I said, “Cassius is going to be board to death.” But I was wrong – again – he loved it! He asked a lot of questions and really wanted to understand the cavemen’ s behaviour and experience.
We watched the BBC series Walking with Cavemen last night and really enjoyed it.
Professor Robert Winston meets Lucy, the first upright ape, and follows her ancestors on the three-million-year journey to civilisation. Broadcast in 2003, Walking with Cavemen combined special effects with the latest scientific theories, to show us what it really means to be human.
