Just a heads-up on a NOVA program Can't Post

This is fascinating to me (since i must have a lion's share of said gene exchange) due to my interest in Paleontology.

It centers on the Neanderthal genome (having been largely mapped after a new sensitive technological advance) present in our own DNA makeup.
Here is link for the show on this Wednesday.

Thanks, sil... [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't know if I'll catch this particular NOVA, but this is an excellent show. Between it, Downton, The Abolitionists, The Dust Bowl, and some old American Experience episodes I've watched lately it really is time for me to make another donation to "TV worth watching".

Oooh, yes! [In reply to] Can't Post

NOVA is one program that our DVR is set to always record, and I'm looking forward to this one in particular.

I actually remembered to watch this [In reply to] Can't Post

Since NOVA moved to Wednesday, I often forget Unsure

Anyway, very interesting. And it explains so much Evil Tongue
