There is an incredible diversity and variety of living forms on Earth. Throughout the world there are tens of millions of species, and countless millions, if not billions of species have existed over evolutionary time. But where did it come from and when did it first arise? In order to find out, we're going to have to go to the early Earth, a journey that spans 4 billion years.




The Advanced Apes is a new channel examining the evolving story of science. We believe that exploring our current understanding of science and its historical context can help us better understand where it's leading us. And it can help us tackle some of life's biggest questions. So please join us in the discussion!
