Travelling back more than 400,000 years, the blue-chip documentary Who Was the Real Neanderthal? transforms our understanding of human evolution and proves our prehistoric cousins were more like us than we ever imagined.

Featuring the rugged landscapes and cave interiors where this extinct species of human once thrived, it’s a journey through time to explore how they lived, what they ate, and—with the creation of true-to-life 3D models—exactly what they looked like.

Exposing fascinating new clues hidden in our own DNA, Who Was the Real Neanderthal? allows us to get to know these sensitive and misunderstood beings like never before.
