Mankind Rising discovery documentary

  1. Dec 15, 2012 #1
    I recently watched an episode of the "Curiosity" discovery show called "Mankind Rising" (http://dsc.discovery.com/tv-shows/curiosity/season-2-episodes7.htm [Broken]) which was about evolution of our species from the first cell all the way until 200,000 years ago. There is also a short summary of some of the facts mentioned in it here: http://dsc.discovery.com/tv-shows/curiosity/topics/mankind-rising-episode8-faq.htm

    If there is anybody here who is familiar with evolution in detail and has happened to see that show, could you tell me how accurately does it describe the current knowledge about evolution? Are there any parts that are completely wrong, or too speculative, or does it actually do a good job of summarizing what is currently known?
