"Comedian and actor Eddie Izzard embarks on a unique, epic and personal journey using his own DNA to trace the migration of his ancestors out of Africa and into Europe."
I may have overlooked this particular programme if perhaps it had been made with someone else...a geneticist for example, as the subject. But I have always adored Eddie Izzard and his particular brand of humour and the way he views life, so I tuned in before I knew what the programme was actually about.
I'm very pleased I did because it is not only fascinating, but amazing to think that such an experiment would not have been possible as little as 5 years ago.
Well worth watching.
