Stunning fossil finds have recently revealed the fascinating stories of evolution’s greatest transitions – from fish that gained the land, to reptiles that took to the air, and primates that walked on two legs.

This DVD includes: Great Transitions: The Origin of Tetrapods; Great Transitions: The Origin of Birds; and Great Transitions: The Origin of Humans

One disc, approximately 60 minutes.
