[Jacob Bronowski] Man is a singular creature
He has a set of gifts which make him unique among the animals
So that unlike them, he is not a figure in the landscape
He is the shaper of the landscape
[Alice Roberts] We are all children of Africa
They say this is where it all began
[Bronowski] In a parched African landscape
Man first put his foot to the ground
[Roberts] Africa was our only home
for tens of thousands of years
until a small handful of people made their way out of Africa
[Carolyn Porco] These beings with soaring imagination
Eventually flung themselves and their machines Into interplanetary space
These beings with soaring imagination
Eventually flung themselves and their machines Into interplanetary space
[Roberts] We are all children of africa
This landscape has been home to humans Two hundred thousand years
[Porco] We have come so far
All of this is cause for great celebration
We have come so far
This is a story about us
[Roberts] Those early Europeans
Were people like you and me
But it is humbling When you see the challenges they faced
People like you and me
Overcame the Neaderthals
People like you and me
Made it through the ice age
[Porco] These beings with soaring imagination
Eventually flung themselves and their machines Into interplanetary space
[Jane Goodall] We are not the only beings With personalities, minds, and feelings
Chimpanzees have very clear personalities
[Robert Sapolsky] Take a chimp brain foetally
And let it go two or three more rounds of division And out comes symphonies and ideology
[Goodall] We are not the only beings
[Neil de Grasse Tyson] Everything that we are That distinguishes us from chimps
Emerges from that one percent Difference in DNA
[Roberts] People like you and me
Overcame the Neaderthals
People like you and me
Made it through the ice age
[Porco] These beings with soaring imagination
Eventually flung themselves and their machines Into interplanetary space
These beings with soaring imagination
Eventually flung themselves and their machines Into interplanetary space
[David Attenborough] Using his burgeoning intelligence, This most successful of all mammals
Has exploited the environment to produce food For an ever increasing population.
Instead of controlling the environment For the benefit of the population
Perhaps it's time we controlled the population To allow the survival of the environment
