MANKIND The Story of All of Us

BIRTH OF A SUPERHERO

The Big Bang was the beginning of everything. The building blocks of all life. The start of our story. 13.7 billion years later, a new species struggles for survival on the African savannah. Homo sapiens. Mankind.

Isolated and vulnerable, we don’t have the teeth, the jaws or the speed of other predators. But we can think, communicate and innovate. We can learn, adapt and explore. These abilities allow us to face down extinction and propel us into an uncertain future.

We work out how to make fire, smelt metal and farm crops. One step a time, we harness nature and shape our destiny. We risk everything to pursue our dreams. We are incredible.

But we’re also troublesome and defiant. We build empires, we conquer and when wronged, we fight back. Since the day we threw our first spear, we’ve been looking for new ways to project power at a distance.

From the producers of America The Story of the US, comes an epic tale - one of the most ambitious series in television history. Over twelve hours we tell the story of a superhero. Us.
