    “A discovery of great significance” --David Attenborough

    When scientists announced the discovery of Ida, the most complete early primate fossil ever found, the world was stunned by the extraordinary detail preserved for 47 million years. And the debate began about Ida’s place in the story of evolution. Could she be one of our earliest ancestors – a remarkable link between the first primates and modern humans?

    With exclusive access to Ida, and the team of world-renowned scientists studying her, this documentary film follows the amazing detective story that followed Ida’s discovery, carried out in secret for two years.

    Using the latest scientific techniques to anaylse and verify the fossil, the team begins to piece together Ida’s forensic secrets, and investigate the link between Ida and human evolution.

    Using state-of-the-art graphics, The Link takes us on an epic evolutionary journey, opening a stunningly evocative window into our past, showing how Ida changes what we know about primate evolution, and ultimately, challenging our idea of what it is to be human and where we came from.

    Special features include an interview with David Attenborough, additional insights into Ida and her background from the experts and behind the scenes footage.

    Please Note:

    These discs are (PAL) format, and will work on all modern Australian & European DVD players.
