Overview

Forever entrenched in history for his theory of evolution, this documentary looks at the life and times of Charles Darwin. This educational video shines the light on his historic voyage on the HMS Beagle that eventually led him to the Galapagos Islands, Tierra del Fuego, and Tahiti. On his return, Darwin produced one of his greatest works The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, published in 1859. Debated by evolutionists, existentialists, and theologians, this video shows the genius behind the man. Highlights include expert analysis and insight into the impact this man made and how his work has influenced today's world. ~ C. Dwayne Smith
