    BBC - Charles Darwin and the Tree of Life
    Date: Sunday 1st February 2009
    Time: 21:00 to 22:00
    Duration: 59:30
    Passionate Darwinian David Attenborough, who sees evolution as the cornerstone of all

    the series he has ever made, shares his personal view on Darwin's controversial idea.

    Journeying through the last two hundred years, he tracks the changes in our understanding
    of the natural world, and asks three key questions:

    How and why did Darwin come up with his theory?
    Why do most people think he was right?
    Why is it more important now than ever before?

    David starts his journey in Darwin's home at Down House in Kent, where Darwin worried and
    puzzled over the origins of life.

    David goes back to his roots in Leicestershire, where he hunted for fossils as a child, and
    where another schoolboy unearthed a significant find in the 1950s. And he revisits
    Cambridge University, where both he and Darwin studied, and where many years later the DNA
    double helix was discovered, providing the foundations for genetics.

    At the end of his journey in the Natural History Museum in London, David concludes that
    Darwin's great insight revolutionised the way in which we see the world.

    We now understand why there are so many different species, and why they are distributed
    in the way they are. But above all, Darwin has shown us that we are not set apart from
    the natural world, and do not have dominion over it.

    We are subject to its laws and processes, as are all other animals on earth to which,
    indeed, we are related.
