Charles Darwin and the Tree of Life: David Attenborough’s not done with science broadcasting yet!

While some parts of the world watch that lamest of top-tier sporting events, the Superbowl, Brits should be spending their Sunday evening watching David Attenborough’s latest show, Charles Darwin and the Tree of Life.

In this programme, David Attenborough asks three key questions: how, and why, did Darwin come up with his theory of evolution? Why do we think he was right? And why is it more important now than ever before?

2009 is the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin and the 150th anniversary of the publication On The Origin Of Species.

Tom Feilden’s blog says what we all think: Attenborough’s a national treasure, and we’re glad that he’s not done explaining the wonders of nature to us.
