Better than some other 9:45 slots :)

But episode 1 presents the Upper Palaeolithic 'lion man' makers as 'scrapping together a subsistence', rather than as an advanced non-sedentary population.

The 'the lion man' is also presented as a 'Religious' object rather than in terms of a 'Magical' object : ie likely it was not representational/'symbolic', but was an actually potent item.

Thanks for the nudge. I rarely catch the 9.45am slot so could have missed this excellent little series. Have just listened to the first 'lion man' episode (headphones on) am now listening to 'fire' episode.
