|1||HDClosed CaptioningVideoYour Inner Fish||Our arms, legs, necks and lungs were bequeathed to us by a fish that lumbered onto land some 375 million years ago. The genetic legacy of this creature can be seen today in our own DNA, including the genes used to build our hands and limbs. See how the genetic legacy of a fish can be seen today in our own DNA.||54:46||$2.99||View in iTunes|
|2||HDClosed CaptioningVideoYour Inner Reptile||A key moment in our evolutionary saga occurred 200 million years ago, when the ferocious reptile-like animals that roamed the Earth were in the process of evolving into shrew-like mammals.

|3||HDClosed CaptioningVideoYour Inner Monkey||Our primate progenitors had bodies a lot like those of modern monkeys and spent tens of millions of years living in trees. From them we inherited our versatile hands, amazing vision and capable brains — but also some less beneficial traits, including our bad backs and terrible sense of smell. Find out which beneficial traits—and some less useful ones—our primate progenitors bequeathed us.||54:45||$2.99||View in iTunes|

This is a program for anyone that loves science and nature and is curious about what we have in common with the animals around us and those that came before us. It has animations (think Avatar, not Mickey Mouse) of the little creatures, shows them out doing their thing and how the changes in the bones and skin helped them survive and thrive.The host has that great combination of 'happy nerd' love for his subject and the ability to say things in a way that a regular person can understand. This is the best illustration of the beauty and quirks of evolution I've seen. It's definitely meant for people old enough to follow the science, but nothing scary happens so kids with an interest would love it, too.
I loved the book and am loving the series.
