We are all human beings. So why do our societies around the world seem so different? How did human civilization develop? And what will society look like in the future, as globalisation and technology upend our ways of life? At a time when global events seem to be driving cultures apart, this series aims to uncover the fundamental forces that keep our societies together, and to reveal the common humanity that lies inside each one of us. In this six-part series, vast in scope and intimate in style, Morgan Freeman goes on a global journey to meet people from all cultures whose lives are shaped in surprising ways by these fundamental forces...to understand how human culture has taken so many remarkable forms.
