The Link

Two-Hour Special for History, ZDF, NRK and BBC Worldwide; One-Hour Special for BBC One

When scientists announced the discovery of Ida, a 47 million year old fossil that could be our earliest ancestor, the world was stunned by the detail preserved in the most complete fossil primate ever found. With exclusive access to Ida, this film follows the scientists who believe she is one of the missing links in the chain of our evolution. Through the remains of one small primate, the film explores the origins of humankind though a fossil that connects to every one of us.

Using fossil data ZOO reconstructed the skeleton of IDA.

Other work included creating an animated sequence showing the incredible sequence of events that led to the fossil’s preservation.
