How he saw the world changed it forever
See the family resemblance?
This BBC-backed film takes a look at how Darwin's ''On the Origin of the Species'' came to be written. It focuses more on Darwin the man than Darwin the scientist, showing the immense personal sacrifices he made to get his book published. It led to conflict with his religious wife, which was compounded by his ill health and the loss of his favourite daughter. The book went on to change the way we view the world.
