Charles Darwin and the Tree of Life

A personal insight from the world's favourite naturalist into Darwin's theory of evolution. This special documentary was made to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin and the 150th anniversary of the publication of 'On The Origin Of Species'. 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 Darwins theory. "Nothing in the natural world makes sense - except when seen in the light of evolution." - David Attenborough.
