Background reading on BBC Horizon's First Britons

Writing about web page http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0675hcv

A couple of weeks ago, the BBC Horizon programme First Britons (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0675hcv) featured Vince Gaffney talking about the collaborative work that he, Robin Allaby and I published in Science earlier in the year. You can still pick up the programme for the next 12 days on the BBC website via iPlayer and it is likely to accessible via YouTube for some time to come if you try searching with this link: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Horizon+First+Britons.

I have already written a blog entry providing the story behind the paper. However, I am bit frustrated that Horizon hasn't provided any bibiography or links to the entire body of exciting work presented in the programme. Really wouldn't take much for them to bridge the gap between journalism and scholarship! So, I have quickly pulled together material here that people can use to follow up on the programme:
