Darwin's Secret Notebooks

2008 NR

This documentary delves into the private journals of Charles Darwin, revealing the deliberate process by which the naturalist -- and one-time creationist -- arrived at his understanding of natural selection. Computer-generated imagery illustrates Darwin's theories, and stunning cinematography takes you to the locations that sparked his revolutionary ideas. Evolutionary biologist Armand Leroi hosts this journey into the mind of a cautious genius.
