Darwin and the tree of life

A personal insight, from the world's favourite naturalist, into Darwin's theory of evolution, exploring why it is more important now than ever before. Beautifully shot, this is the start of a series of celebrations of the man behind the theory that changed the world's thinking. But more than that, this is a labor of love for a man who has been at the forefront of natural history programming for decades.

  • "Darwin's great insight - that life has evolved over millions of years by natural selection - has been the cornerstone of all David Attenborough's natural history series. In this documentary, he takes us on a deeply personal journey which reflects his own life and the way he came to understand Darwin's theory."

  • "Documentary about Charles Darwin and his theory of evolution by natural selection. Passionate Darwinian David Attenborough, who sees evolution as the cornerstone of all the series he has ever made, shares his personal view on Darwin's controversial idea. Journeying through the last two hundred years, he tracks the changes in our understanding of the natural world, and asks three key questions: how and why did Darwin come up with his theory? Why do most people think he was right? And why is it more important now than ever before?"
  • "David Attenborough explores the life and theories of Charles Darwin, while linking Darwin's journeys to Attenborough's own. The documentary ends with a discussion of the contributions Darwin made to modern scientific thought and theory."

  • ""Marking the 150th anniversary of the publication of 'On the Origin of Species,' this program shows how Charles Darwin developed his theory of evolution and explores its ramifications in today's scientific community. Renowned natural history interpreter David Attenborough travels the globe, examining fresh evidence for Darwinian thought and illustrating why it is more relevant than ever. Viewers encounter findings from a wide range of disciplines, including paleontology, biogeography, anatomy, and embryology, as well as early controversies surrounding the study of plate tectonics. Spectacular wildlife footage reveals fascinating animal behavior and helps depict the theory that changed the world's thinking. A BBC/Open University Co-production."--Container."

  • "Presented by David Attenborough, this programme looks at the broad spectrum of animals on our planet and how Charles Darwin attempted to explain this diversity. Attenborough traces the journey of Darwin as he wrote his theory of natural selection, illustrated with the kinds of animals and plants he encountered on the way. There is also footage of Attenborough throughout his career observing and reporting on animals across the globe. Attenborough describes Darwin's struggle with publishing his theory of natural selection, fearing the outrage of the religious, including his devout wife. However, as fellow naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace began to get closer to the same theory of natural selection, Darwin was forced to make his research public. Opposition to Darwin's theory came from Richard Owen - he and other Victorian geologists believed the history of life could be deduced from the land around them; they did not believe that animal species could change or that different species were related. Attenborough explains how the theory of natural selection won the argument and led to further theories such as those of Gregor Mendel, and eventually to the discovery of DNA."
