Discovering Ardi DVD Review

Discovering Ardi DVD Review




Synopsis: Has a 4.4-million-year-old: missing link, been found? The groundbreaking discovery of the skeleton nicknamed: Ardi, more than a million years older than Lucy, offers a fascinating look at what the last common ancestor of humans and living apes might have been like. An international team of scientists, who 17 years ago began an investigation of the remote Ethiopian desert where the discovery was made, has painstakingly analyzed its findings and now can reveal in compelling detail how and why humans emerged. This exclusive peek at a new chapter on human evolution, narrated by Dirty Jobs’ Mike Rowe and illuminated with 3D recreations, brings Ardi and her world to vivid life.

Review: We really enjoy watching a good documentary here at the Legion.  When we heard about Ardi, we were fascinated.  Then, once we heard about Discovery doing a special on the find...well, there was no question that we had to tune-in!  No one does scientific documentary tv like Discovery!

The finding of Ardi is an absolute coup in the scientific community.  It really helps to tie in various theories on evolution with fact.   He is one of the missing links that has been searched for all of these years.  The fact that we're still making finds like this is so exciting, not only as a person that is very in-tune with science, but just as a human being, trying to make sense of the world and our past.  Mike Rowe does a great job on narration and the special is very well put together.

We cannot recommend watching this one enough.  Go pick it up today!
