In BBC Inside Science, Dr Lucie Green and guests illuminate the mysteries and challenge the controversies behind the science that's changing our world.
On this week's programme:
Homo floresiensis: The show marks 10 years since Homo floresiensis was discovered with Chris Stringer at the Natural History Museum talking about the discoveries and controversies. He also discusses the earliest modern human at 45,000 years old and discovers the DNA has the same percentage of Neanderthal DNA as modern Eurasians.
Genetics of height: The new study into the genetics of height is investigated as Professor Tim Frayling at Exeter University and others have found hundreds of genes linked to our height.
