Darwin and Evolution

Show Summary

Charles Darwin's theory of evolution stands as one of the most important discoveries in the history of science. Yet in his lifetime, Darwin was reluctant to reveal what he had learned for fear it woud leave him and his family as despised outcasts. He was right to worry; viewed by many as heresy at the time, more than a century later there are those who still do not accept his findings. HISTOR provides this six-episode collection as in-depth look at Darwin's theory of evolution, from an illuminating profile of the man himself to a detailed timeline of the rise of mankind, including how the extinction of the dinosaurs prepared the earth for mankind's ascent; the mysterious natural events that brought man to his feet; the law that forbid the teaching of evolution in public schools and the trial that questioned its constitutionality; and what the most recent discoveries about human origins and characteristics mean for the future.
