PBS show Journey of Man
Anyone else watch the PBS show on the genetic tree of life for modern man a while back? It was The Journey of Man (click)

Join Wells in JOURNEY OF MAN as he travels to every continent on earth, endures every terrain, from the deserts of Namibia to the frozen extremes of the Russian Arctic, and meets the key human groups that hold the genetic history of mankind in their blood — including the African Bushmen, Australian Aborigines, Native Americans, Chukchi reindeer herders and Kyrgyz nomads.

The two-hour program aired on PBS Tuesday, January 21, 2003. It had some interesting information, but I think he needs to work on his timing a little, and he doesn't really get into the migrations into Europe as much as I expected. He talked about skin color on the show.

He also talked about "Mungo Man" in Australia, and recent evaluation of evidence shows the age to be about 40,000 years ago instead of the 50k reported (although that matches the age of the oldest known artifacts in Australia).
