First episode review.
I LOVE the deep time element. It's extraordinary and delightful. I'm thrilled to have a few questions about recent archaeological discoveries cleared up (as in why Egypt is now considered to be contemporary to and independent of Mesopotamia).
I found the constant repetition of the fact that Africa is the cradle of all mankind and the earliest developments in civilization a bit off putting, but then again I acknowledge that it is information which goes against what we were all taught 'back in the day', so it probably needs a bit of reinforcement.
I'm really looking forward to the rest of the series.
