Required Viewing For All, 15 Jun. 2009
In a very pleasant and viewer-friendly style especially for the average punter on the street, Dr. Roberts uses the latest scientific findings to explain just how 'under the skin, we are ALL children of Africa'. Differences in physical characteristics (e.g. skin colour) which helas have been and are still being used to drive us humans apart, are found to be nothing more than the evolutionary realignment necessary for the survival of our common ancestors from Africa in their new-found yet often hazardous environment they had to call 'home' (Asia, Europe, Oceania and Americas). But the underlying truth that we are ALL related, and a lot closer than we sometimes dare to admit (today's so-called 'non-Africans' ALL descend from only several hundred Africans!) makes me wish that Dr. Roberts' work be made required study if not viewing for all, or at least for those at secondary school level.
