Ella Al-Shamahi, a rising star in Neanderthal research, enlists the skills of Andy Serkis, the master of performance capture, and a group of experts to create a scientifically accurate 3D Neanderthal. This two-part series investigates what they looked like and what would have happened when we met them.
It turns out that what we thought we knew about them is wrong. They weren't hunched, grunting, knuckle-dragging ape-men at all. In a reconstructed, imaginary confrontation, we discover that they were faster, smarter, and much more like us than we ever thought.
