first life

OK everyone(hopefully) knows cells come from other cells and evoloution is a result of mutations over generations, but I'm curious as to where the very first life came from. Were the first cells just freak repeating chemical reactions or something? I've heard on discovery channel or something the first cingle-celled organisms began even before oceans in the earth's mantle from the heat. Does anyone know anything about this?
