Their eyes locked, and just when Clary was about to give in and press her lips hungrily to his, he whispered to her. And before he could stop her, she took her arm from his grip and just Take me away from here Show me the past. She felt a jerk as she freefalled into the brilliance, and squinted back to see Jace holding on tight to her wrist.

She frowned, trying to find her lips to tell him 'no'. His expression looked stuck between anxiety and anger. And then they landed. It was not a graceful landing — and certainly not a painfree one either. Both Clary and Jace hit the solid ground hard, rolling over each over several times before stopping and laying still for a second, panting hard.

It took several seconds to realise that Clary was tangled with more than one other set of limbs, and as she extracted her arms and legs from the pile and drew herself up to sit, she caught Isabelle and Alec copying her.

Show more According to recent science the Neanderthals are not the knuckle-dragging apemen of popular imagination. In fact they are our distant ancestors. This first programme in a two-part series investigates what Neanderthals looked like and and how they lived in their Ice Age world. It turns out that almost everything we thought we knew about them is wrong.

They weren't hunched, grunting, knuckle-dragging ape-men at all. In reality they were faster, smarter, better looking - and much more like us than we ever thought. Our guide is Ella Al-Shamahi, a young, British, rising star in Neanderthal research, with an unusual sideline as a stand-up comic.

Ned's fossil shows that he had survived for many years after suffering a number of crippling injuries. This could only have happened if he had been cared for by the rest of his community. This was an advanced society that knew how to survive. So why did they disappear? One of the reasons might have been that they lost out in a physical showdown with modern humans. Ella investigates one of the world's oldest murder mysteries.

A Neanderthal skeleton found in the Shanidar cave in Iraq gives us clues to a gruesome death. In the studio Ella and her team of scientists reconstruct an experiment to discover whether the perpetrator of this murder was a Neanderthal or a modern human.
