Greenlit: The Human Family Tree, National Geographic

The Human Family Tree (1×120′) – Kevin Bacon narrates this documentary that aims to trace the ancestral footsteps of humanity by taking DNA From 200 random strangers on a single street on a single day in one of the most diverse parts of the world – Queens, NY, and finding out if they have more in common ancestrally, than just a zip code.

According to Cynopsis, to publicize the programme among advertisers, Nat Geo took DNA samples from more than 600 advertising execs in the USA. It turns out  “9% of the women shared an ancestor with Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert and 40% of the men shared an ancestor with U2’s Bono.”
