The sound of the flute that you hear in this clip, is produced on a copy of the old flute. Wikipedia says about this flute: "In 2008 another flute dated back to at least 35,000 years ago was discovered in Hohle Fels cave near Ulm, Germany. The five-holed flute has a V-shaped mouthpiece and is made from a vulture wing bone. The researchers involved in the discovery officially published their findings in the journal Nature, in June 2009. The discovery is also the oldest confirmed find of any musical instrument in history." This movie clip is from the BBC documentary "The Incredible Human Journey" ("Menneskets store vandring", 2009), with Norwegian commentaries and subtitles.
