Taming the Beasts - The History of Animal Domestication

History, Science 2 x 52' or 2 x 43' 2022 HD + 4K

The history of human civilization is the history of the animals that made it possible. This two-part series shows the rise of humankind through the animals that have accompanied us on this journey for millennia. We use their strength and superior senses, their flesh and instincts. And we enjoy their loyalty and friendship. It’s probably one of the greatest strokes of luck in human history: competitors and opponents in the struggle for survival became our companions. The films take an in-depth look at this evolved symbiosis with all facets between exploitation and adoration.
