For a quarter of a million years, Europe was home to a different species of human.

Their world was harsh and unforgiving, ravaged by Ice Ages and stalked by cave lions, bears and leopards. Yet they thrived, perfectly in tune with their environment. They were the Neanderthals.
Then 40,000 years ago, another human species - modern Man - arrived in Europe. Within 10,000 years, the last Neanderthal was dead.
Neanderthal, a revealing drama documentary tells the story of modern Man's closest human relatives.

It challenges the popular misconception that they were hairy, brutish cavemen and looks at the mystery of their extinction, including the role our ancestors may have played.
