Today's global population is extraordinarily diverse; yet we all share one thing in common: DNA that tells us one astonishing message - we are all closely related. In this series Alice Roberts will show how most of us descend from a tiny group of men and women who left Africa in a perilous crossing - and then went on to colonise the rest of the world. She will explain how all Europeans living today are descended from just a handful of women why different ethnic groups look the way they do what makes some of us able to tolerate milk and alcohol and why others are great at conserving heat.
