Attenborough should be ashamed to put his name to this nonsense; it's a perfect example of why modern scientists and their methodologies cannot be trusted. People like Jørn Hurum are always looking to make their name by turning some ordinary fossil (or a mixture of different ones) into the 'missing link' and they'll pull any number of tricks to do so.
Anyone who's aware of the real truth behind finds such as the famous 'Lucy' will immediately recognise the similar and ex parte way the information is presented to youwhom they consider too dumb to figure out such an obvious ruse.
In this episode of Gold-Digging Pseudoscientists (as it should be called), they have found a fossil of a species of lemur in Germanyand yes Jørn it IS just a lemurin an area known to produce fossils ofyou guessed itlemurs and they proceed (to pretend) to carry out an investigation that will ultimately lead them to their preordained conclusions.
All manner of chicanery is employed to this end. Some of it is obvious, such as the way the animated skeleton is displayed as a biped when it is clearlyand even confessed to bea quadruped, and some you will have to read about later, such as the cherry-picked cladistic analysis. They even gave the fossil a human name and assigned it the genus Darwinius to help convince you... pathetic!
