Synopsis

Are you ready for an evolution revolution? Let Professor Robert Winston take you on a journey of discovery through evolutionary science and the way Charles Darwin's revolutionary theories changed the world.

Explore lands of fire, meet curious creatures, and peer into the future as you follow Darwin on his epic voyage in search of the origins of species. Find out what the survival of the fittest means; and see how it applies in nature, from discovering how the elephant got its trunk to the ghost genes in your own body. See the main family trees of the living world, and join in the debate about whether humans actually evolved from apes. (Spoiler alert: we share a common ancestor.)

Discover how previous thinkers believed life began and find out how theories developed after Darwin, with modern scientists revealing the secrets of genes and DNA and showing what lies in the future.

All About Evolution looks at the origins of you, your friends, and every living thing on Earth!
