I highly recommend "Becomming Human". Nova does great work and this is one of their best, in my view. This is a brilliant overview of the human story and as humans we should all know that story!
In addition to "Becoming Human," I also recommend the following DVDs:
Walking With Cavemen
Evolution Boxed Set
National Geographic - Search for the Ultimate Survivor
--Guy P. Harrison, author of "Race and Reality: What Everyone Should Know About Our Biological Diversity" and "50 Reasons People Give for Believing in a God" (a skeptical analysis of common justifications for religious belief)
I also find the opening line of "Human: without a doubt the smartest animal on earth." To be rather small minded. Yes, we have created, built, and imagined many things, but we can not say that we are more intelligent than any animal that can think. Birds, mice, dolphins, cats, dogs, even cockroaches and gold fish can salve problems and work out puzzles. This is new age propaganda painting humans as the pinnacle perfection of nature. I'm sorry, but with all the world's problems created by us we are not.
If it matters: it had a large contribution by David H. Koch. I am glad he's giving his money to something good, but knowing the Koch politics, I feel like his people made sure that some of the facts and information was tampered with.
