Mankind: A Sequel Documentary on History Channel

A couple of years ago, the History Channel gave us the excellent documentary series America: The Story of Us. Now, prepare yourselves for an even more epic follow-up -- Mankind: The Story of All of Us.

The 12-part series begins November 13 and promises to chronicle the history of the human race.

The first episode will be "Inventors," a look at the discovery of fire, the development of agriculture, the building of cities and the pyramids, and more.

It's a grand, ambitious project.  Tune in!
