  • BBC documentary presented by David Attenborough, made to mark the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth and the 150th anniversary of the publication of the seminal text 'On the Origin of Species'. Tracing Darwin's life and work from his Leicestershire roots to Cambridge University and his home at Down House in Kent, the film asks three key questions: How and why did Darwin come up with his theory of evolution? Why do we think he was right? And why is it more important now than ever before?
