A personal insight, from the world's favourite naturalist, into Darwin's theory of evolution, exploring why it is more important now than ever before. Beautifully shot, this is the start of a series of celebrations of the man behind the theory that changed the world's thinking. But more than that, this is a labor of love for a man who has been at the forefront of natural history programming for decades.

Even David Attenborough is not going to be able to cover the complete Theory of Evolution in a one-hour TV special. Still, he covers the bases: Darwin's gradual approach to the idea, the contemporary controversy, and the common objections. Bonuses include glimpses inside of Darwin's home, and Attenborough's sheer delight in the natural world.

Very well done and interesting documentary movie. A pleasure to watch. I would recommend this movie for all to see. No fast forwarding no falling asleep on this one.

This, unfortunately, is NOT Terrence Malick's TREE OF LIFE, winner of the 2011 Palms D'Or in Cannes, but a David Attenborough programmer from. 2009.
