In Search Of... "The Missing Link" (1982)

The Missing Link finally makes an appearance in the series. We start off taking a look at a 1973 expedition where it is believed the first missing link bones were discovered. From here we talk about the actual bones that were located and the debate scientists have about what that means for humans. If you're a fan of the show or this type of subject then you'll certainly enjoy this episode as it features some very entertaining interviews and of course the topic itself is quite interesting. The link or connection between man and animal is fully explored and makes for a very entertaining episode.
