This is the first in a series of iLecture films which explores the beginning of the most important migration - and monumental exodus - made by humankind. Based on genetic, archaeological and climatic evidence, the film explores why our African ancestors migrated, the choices they had in deciding their migration routes, and when this would have occurred. The film reveals the halting but determined progress of our prehistoric predecessors, and how our physical and behavioural adaptations were focussed on surviving the struggle with our greatest enemy and sternest teacher - climate. It represents an amazing journey of opportunity and survival, confirmed by genetic science and documented by ancient rock art.

The iLectures (information lectures) represent documentary films, presenting latest theories and creating apolitical discussion. The films have been designed to be fact-driven, drawing from experts around the world. Because the digital films are available as downloads, the information can be viewed virtually anywhere. Watch the Bradshaw film on your iPod on a dusty road through the Kimberley Ranges. This exciting new concept in education harnesses the latest technology to open up our ancient past.
