How do you tame wildness?

For hundreds of thousand of years our ancestors existed in a world where they depended on wild plants and animals. They were hunter-gatherers – consummate survival experts, but taking the world as they found it.

Then a revolution happened: we started to domesticate wild species and they became crucial to our own survival and success.   Join Alice Roberts as she delves into archaeology, history and genetics to reveal the amazing stories of the species that became our allies.   From dogs, cattle and horses to wheat, potatoes and apples, find out how taming all these species has left its mark on them – and us.
