The Bushmen of southern Africa are believed to be direct descendents of the first evolved Homo sapiens over 100,000 years ago. Geneticist Spencer Wells' research reveals that the genetic markers found in their DNA are unlike any others found outside of Africa.

JOURNEY OF MAN tells the remarkable story of the human journey out of Africa and into the rest of the world, tracing history through evidence uncovered in the Y-chromosome of mans DNA. Traversing six continents, the film takes viewers on a fascinating journey into the hidden world of their ancestry and offers a modern look at our ancestors lives.
