Starring Stacey Cadman in the title role, it reveals that teenage life hasn't evolved all that much as the heroine takes viewers on a journey to a place before time began, but where problems of bad hair, bad fashion, boys and sibling rivalry still take precedence over survival.

A caveman is a stock character representative of primitive man in the Paleolithic. The popularisation of the type dates to the early 20th century, when Neanderthal Man was influentially described as “simian” or ape-like by Marcellin Boule and Arthur Keith. While knowledge of human evolution in the Pleistocene has become much more detailed, the stock character has persisted, even though it anachronistically conflates characteristics of archaic humans and early modern humans. The term “caveman” has its taxonomical equivalent in the now-obsolete Homo troglodytes (“cave-dwelling man”, Linnaeus 1758).
