Documentary Description

Could we all be descendants of an Adam? And if Adam existed, who was he, where did he live and what did he look like?

Join leading geneticist and National Geographic Explorer-In-Residence, Spencer Wells, as he embarks on a quest to trace every man's family tree back to an ultimate ancestor.

His extraordinary journey ultimately lands him in Africa where he pinpoints the birthplace of human kind. Using the latest technology in DNA research and forensic anthropology, Wells and others reconstruct the life and face of Adam.

And, he has entered a world where science and religion converge—the search for what he calls the “scientific Adam,” the man who gave rise to all men today and the trunk of the human family tree. Wells has used DNA to trace this common ancestor back to Africa and perhaps to the very plains where he may have hunted.

He has even identified a living tribe with an ancient lineage that offers a window into the life of scientific Adam.  Explore a world where science and religion converge as new light is shed on our ancient past in The Search for Adam.
