The film shows how microtomography, CT scans and X-ray techniques were used to examine and recreate a 3D image of the creature, revealing that this early primate was a previously unknown species and one of our earliest ancestors.

It's 47 million years since Ida died; around 25 years since she was excavated from Messel Pit; and just over 2 years since Dr Jørn Hurum acquired her fossil for the University of Oslo Natural History Museum.

On Tuesday 19th May 2009, Ida was finally presented to the world. She is set to revolutionize our understanding of human evolution. Ida has got her own website: www.RevealingTheLink.com.

Watch the video film about Ida and her place in our history:

Premiere monday 25 May 2009, 9 PM, on History Channel:
An incredible 95 percent complete fossil of a 47-million-year-old human ancestor has been discovered and, after two years of secret study, an international team of scientists has revealed it to the world. The fossil’s remarkable state of preservation allows an unprecedented glimpse into early human evolution. www.history.com
