This two-hour special from NOVA and National Geographic, which premiered online on September 10, 2015, explores the amazing discovery of ancient remains in South Africa that may help to rewrite our understanding of human and prehuman history. There are many worthwhile clips in the episode that can easily be integrated into lesson plans. However, the video in its entirety is well worth watching as it allows viewers to experience the thrill of discovery as scientists descend into a "vertical, pitch-dark, seven-inch-wide passage" and begin removing what turns out to be over 1,500 bones. Readers will also find additional video resources on evolution in the Related Links section of the page.
