Published 150 years ago, Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species changed everything - science, religion, and even humanity's image of itself. Join Professor Richard Dawkins as he explains exactly how Darwin developed his revolutionary theory of evolution and why it's still relevant today.

How do species evolve? What does "natural selection" mean in biology, politics, sociology, and philosophy? With passionate certainty, Dawkins provides answers, positing evolution as matter of fact, not faith. In addition to interviewing scientific experts such as geneticist Craig Venter and paleoanthropologist Richard Leakey, Dawkins speaks with Dr. Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury, and other religious leaders about the existence of a Creator. Provocative, informative, and irresistibly watchable, this award-winning documentary offers lively new insights on an idea that still meets stubborn resistance.

Evolutionary biologist and fellow of the Royal Society, Richard Dawkins, has served as professor of public understanding of science at Oxford University. He has written dozens of scholarly and popular works, including the controversial best seller The God Delusion.

Three Episodes:

  • Life, Darwin & Everything
    • Who was Charles Darwin, and how did he conceive his revolutionary idea? How does evolution work? Most important, why does it matter? Darwin's treatise, On the Origin of Species, represented the culmination of years of research and thought. And, the evidence confirming natural selection has continued to mount.
  • The Fifth Ape
    • As a product of natural selection, the human species has nevertheless managed to transcend the evolutionary process by developing altruism. Dawkins explores the social and political implications of evolution - and how some proponents have misused science to promote genocide, eugenics, and ethnic cleansing.
  • God Strikes Back
    • Despite overwhelming evidence, many religious fundamentalists around the world refuse to accept evolution. Face to face, Dawkins takes on these who would deny or attack Darwin's idea. Finally, Dawkins explains how people might find consolation in the idea of a world ruled by brutal natural forces rather than a benign Creator.
