Abstract:
"Your Inner Fish" is a new PBS series premiering Wednesday, April 9, 2014, at 10 p.m. Pacific / 9 p.m. Central. The series is based on the best-selling book of University of Chicago paleontologist and evolutionary biologist Neil Shubin.

Using fossils, embryos and genes, Shubin reveals how our bodies are the legacy of ancient fish, reptiles and primates - the ancestors you never knew were in your family tree. This program will feature the first episode of the three-part science series.
