Why are there no flying monkeys but plenty of flying dinosaurs? Why are there no natural wheels on Earth? And how can a human outrun an antelope? Join zoologist Matt Wilkinson on a whistle-stop tour of the evolution of moving around, and find out how our ancestors became two-legged, why we have opposable thumbs, backbones and brains, how even trees are obsessed with movement, and how going from place to place has dominated the four-billion-year history of life.
Matt Wilkinson is a zoologist and professional actor who has recently written the acclaimed book Restless Creatures.
