An Ambitious Series About The History Of Mankind To Be Shown On Gma News Channel 11

ONE OF THE most ambitious series in TV history, “Mankind: The Story of All of Us” will be shown on GMA News Channel 11 starting tonight. First aired on the History Channel, ‘Mankind’ is an epic 12-hour television event on the history of the human race. This is not history as you learnt in textbooks. It’s visceral, surprising and dangerous.

Drawing on the style of action movies, the series dramatizes key moments in the story of Mankind. Some are familiar, others less so, but each has been chosen as it’s a key turning point – a stepping stone in our journey from hunter-gatherer to global citizen. It’s about being interconnected: how the lives of people in one part of the world are shaped by events in another. Episodes covered throughout the series include the ice age, the advent of farming, the sacking of Rome, the discovery of the New World, the fall of the Aztec empire, the Industrial Revolution and more.

A story of struggle and triumph on a harsh and brutal planet, it is also how, against all odds, we survived. Embracing spectacular storytelling methods, it features jaw-dropping imagery and dramatic reconstructions of the most critical events in human history. To be narrated in Filipino by award-winning documentarist Jay Taruc, it airs Fridays at 8PM starting tonight.
