PBS to air Turkana Basin documentary
Bones of Turkana follows the story of famed paleoanthropologist Richard Leakey and his wife Meave, daughter Louise and their colleagues, as they work in the arid northern regions of Kenya’s Turkana Basin to unravel the mysteries of human evolution. While one of the Leakeys’ goals is to demonstrate the complexity and truth of human evolution, they also seek to show how the qualities that we proudly call human were all born in Africa.
Bones of Turkana airs on PBS on May 16, 2012. Please check local listings for the time of broadcast.
The story that emerges is exciting, emotional, contemplative, occasionally funny, and in the end, transforming. This is Africa at its most beautiful and harshest.
We hope you will tune in for Bones of Turkana, written, directed and produced by John Heminway.
