Enigma Man A Stone Age Mystery is one hour of television about the amazing discovery of the Red Deer Cave People and the mystery that it presents about our human origins.
Very early on the director, Daniella Ortega, realised:
We were unlikely to have a traditional neat ending to this mystery within our production period. Infact, like many questions about human evolution we may never have an absolute resolution to the mystery. But what does emerge is a profound sense that the story of Red Deer Cave is big. This is not just about some weird bones that were found, but about how science itself is challenged, how Asia is rising as an incredibly exciting place which may unlock secrets of our evolution and, most of all, for what this story raises about who we really are as a species.
Enigma Man A Stone Age Mystery goes to air on ABC TV Tuesday 24 June @ 8.30pm
