#TVforTeachers –Pick of the Week–Your Inner Fish: An Evolution Story

As part of ERA’s commitment to helping licence holders make best use of the material available to them, we have decided to start highlighting our ‘top pick’ each week. We’re hoping to reveal multiple educational uses for a single episode, series, or film with enough time to act as a ‘heads up’ for teachers to be able to record, or access the material.


BBC 4 Series, Your Inner Fish: An Evolution Story (all episodes currently available via iPlayer) takes a close look at our ancestors. From the BBC Site:

It took more than 350 million years for the human body to take shape. Anatomist Neil Shubin reveals how our bodies are the legacy of ancient fish, reptiles and primates, the ancestors you never knew were in your family tree. Our bodies carry the anatomical legacy of animals that lived hundreds of millions of years ago.

Featuring episodes Your Inner Fish, Your Inner Reptile, and Your Inner Monkey the series offers insight into how the human race came to be as we know it today.
