MIPTV Picks 2012: Mankind – The Story of All of Us

History is presenting another Nutopia "megadoc," taking on the global history of civilization, ranging from the ancient Egyptians and the building of Stonehenge to the European Dark Ages and many points between.
March 23, 2012

In 2010, History and Nutopia collaborated on an epic retelling of the founding and evolution of the United States, America: The Story of Us. The miniseries boasted cinematic recreations, state of the art CGI, and an introduction to the first episode from none other than U.S. President Barack Obama. Unsurprisingly, the program became one of the network’s highest rated in its history. Now, A+E is presenting another Nutopia “megadoc” that’s even more ambitious in scale. Taking on the global history of civilization, ranging from the ancient Egyptians and the building of Stonehenge to the European Dark Ages and many points between, the series takes the original’s mix of CGI, re-enactment and factual insight and ups the ante.
