The World About Us: Darwin

on BBC Two England

A series of films from all over the world about our astonishing planet and the creatures that live on it.

In 1835 a young divinity student called Charles Darwin voyaged round the world, calling at the remote and weirdly beautiful island archipelago of Galapagos. What he saw sparked off a theory of evolution through natural selection which was to shake the foundations of contemporary religion and natural science.
Written and narrated by Lister Sinclair.
