HISTORY™ announces acclaimed Malaysian actor Dato’ Jalaludin Hassan as the Bahasa Malaysia narrator for the epic six-part series, “Mankind The Story of All of Us“.
Dato’ Jalaludin Hassan is a veteran Malaysian born actor, renowned for his many movie and drama roles in the Malaysian film industry. He is well known for being the larger than life host of “Who wants to be a Millionaire”, and his starrring roles in Astana Idaman and Ringgit Kasorga among others.
“It’s an honour for me to narrate the Bahasa Malaysia version of this monumental series. Mankind tells the story of our evolution and ultimate success”, said Dato’ Hassan.
Over two years in the making, this programming event is one of the most in-depth television series ever produced by HISTORY. MANKIND will be the first global series premiere in the history of the network, as well as a worldwide educational initiative.
MANKIND will be the first television series in a generation to look at the history of the human race through the ages, but in a way that will be highly ambitious with the scale of its cinematic vision. Jaw-dropping CGI technology and dramatic reconstructions of the most critical events in human history brought to life, as never seen before, will leave viewers spell-bound to the compelling story of our race.

In every episode, the path of Mankind’s progress will be unlocked through a set of mysterious keys. These will range from the first tools to the construction of the pyramids, to the birth of agriculture and the revolutions in military technology; and through the Vikings landing in America and discovery of new worlds, culminating in the industrial revolution and the making of the modern world. Remarkably, Mankind’s path is guided by events that stretch back, not hundreds, but thousands, even millions of years.
“Mankind The Story of All of Us” will premiere 14th November 2012 (Wednesday) at 9pm on HISTORY (Astro Channel 555).
