How far have we come?  

God Knows is a live discovery channel, replaying a Neanderthal community against today's corporate world. How far have we come? Let's find out. God Knows will offer an hour of laughter, surprise and instinctual pleasure. 

Rewind time to watch an extinct species of man in their natural habitat. See the dramas of this community that revolve around survival, reproduction and the first discovery of art. Then fast forward through a kaleidoscope of eras to an episode of 2012's prime species: the business man, where his weekly meeting has just as much stone throwing, fire lighting and blood spill as back in the cave.

With two very different but equally entertaining sections, this show takes the audience on a journey where the chiefs' change from men with clubs to women in heels and the plebs from water gatherers to energy drink consumers.
