The life and work of groundbreaking British naturalist Charles Darwin.  New for 2009, the bicen-tennial of his birth, and the sesquicentennial of the publication of “Origin of Species.” 

Actor/scholar Michael Oakes, who earned his B.S. in Zoology and his M.S. in Conservation Biology, brings a rare depth of knowledge to this masterful portrayal. 

Audiences will gain an appreciation of the rigor and diligence central to science, the scientific method, and the wealth of subsequent scientific evi-dence, from Paleontology, Ecology, and Genetics, supporting Darwin’s seminal theories on Natural Selection and “The Decent of Man.”
