Next week, History will premiere the first part of Mankind The Story of All Of Us, a six-night series that will focus on man's ascent on this planet. History's trailer for Mankind offers an exciting look at what will be explored in the special, which is set to be narrated by Oscar nominee Josh Brolin.
Mankind The Story Of All Of Us premieres the first of six parts on Tuesday, November 13 at 9/8c on History. As you'll see in the trailer below, the special takes a look at the history of man and the steps taken to bring humanity forward throughout the years, from the days of hunting and gathering through more developed civilization. The trailer below suggests a mini-series that's both education and entertaining, with glimpses of people in battle, structures being built, and the devastation of plague among the snippets featured.
It takes nine billion years for the ideal planet to form, four billion more for the right conditions to emerge before it finally happens: mankind begins. From the dawning of time, mankind has faced numerous obstacles and made surprising leaps forward. In an epic overview of the human race, this fast paced story of us is history like viewers have never seen before. Each event has been chosen because it’s a key turning point— a stepping stone in our journey from hunter-gatherer to global citizen. Our story is all about connections— why some ideas take hold and spread around the world and how the lives of people in one part of the world are shaped by events in another.
And speaking of education, History has a "global teach in" event, produced in partnership with UNESCO, set to take place tomorrow afternoon. The event will feature a panel of historians and special guests as well as students from around the world. here's a promotional video promoting the teach in live Mankind event set for Thursday afternoon (November 8 at 12:00 p.m. ET, 9:00 a.m. PT).
