Annotation In 1974, Johanson unearthed Lucy, at almost 3 million years of age, our oldest human ancestor. Lucy's tiny three-and-a-half-foot-tall skeleton set the world of paleoanthropology on its ear by showing that upright walking, not a larger brain, was the key factor that separated us from the ape. In this episode, Johanson recounts his discovery and the important information it continues to generate. We join him as he returns to the site in Ethiopia and makes an exciting new find that sheds light on the relationship between the sexes and the birth of the nuclear family.
