Opening Sequence

Many of you have inquired about the music and graphics used in the Ancestors series, especially in the opening sequence. The graphics were provided by 4:2:2 Videographic Design of Bristol, England. The theme music for Ancestors was composed by David Lowe. Mr. Lowe's CD, entitled Dreamcatcher, has been released in Britain.

Students from Brigham Young University's Music Composition program created the music for all documentary segments except Hannibal Lokumbe, episode 10.
