Answering the question

'There's plenty of 'big questions' which we're curious about but don't have answers to at the moment. But tracing the roots of African slave descendents is one of the questions that science is beginning to answer. The Motherland project was an attempt to see what genetics could finally reveal about these people's ancestry.'

Archie Baron, Takeaway Media

See the full story of the project in the programme, Motherland: A Genetic Journey on BBC2 at 21:00 on 14 February.
