Summary

Sir David Attenborough examines new evidence on a controversial theory of human origins, after first considering the hypothesis in 2004. The idea was proposed in 1960 by Oxford marine biologist Sir Alister Hardy, who suggested that human ancestors started their existence alongside water, and was later taken up by screenwriter Elaine Morgan.
