TV review: Lively 'Mankind' races through our history
There's no way to boil down the entire history of mankind into 12 hours over six nights. But History makes an impressive attempt with "Mankind: The Story of All of Us" (8 p.m. CT Nov. 13; 3 stars out of 4) by focusing on how pivotal moments--the taming of fire, the idea of farming, the creation of weapons and tools, the first traders--shaped mankind's destiny.
