Are We Still Evolving?

I have not watched this yet but seems interesting based on the synopsis and is now freely available to watch online :) - MA

Synopsis fromTop Documentary Films:
Dr Alice Roberts asks one of the great questions about our species: are we still evolving?

There’s no doubt that we’re a product of millions of years of evolution. But thanks to modern technology and medicine, did we escape Darwin’s law of the survival of the fittest?

Alice follows a trail of clues from ancient human bones, to studies of remarkable people living in the most inhospitable parts of the planet, to the frontiers of genetic research to discover if we are still evolving – and where we might be heading.

Watch the full documentary now (playlist – 1 hour). Alternatively watch it at BBC. If the 2nd part doesnt play then go to the Top Documentary Films page.
