Biography Documentary hosted by Roisin McAuley and published by BBC in 1998 - English narration



Published in 1859, Charles Darwin's theory of evolution rocked the academic world. Today, his legacy is due to become more controversial than ever, as biology moves to replace physics as the supreme science of the next century.

1) Life
In the first of two installments, this film examines the life of Charles Darwin, tracing the development of his big idea - evolution - and examining the paradox of the conventional man who developed one of the most revolutionary ideas in science.

2) Legacy
Film exploring the changing impact of the ideas of Charles Darwin, revealing how different political thinkers have seized on Darwinism to justify their proposed models for society. Before Darwin, Victorians believed that God created and placed all species on Earth and gave man dominion over animals. But Darwin's radical ideas challenged the status quo and have since influenced radically different models for society.
