In the fourth century BC the Greek philosopher Aristotle went to Lesbos, an island in the Aegean full, then as now, with wildlife.

His fascination with what he found there, and his careful study of it, gave birth to a new science – biology.

Professor Armand Leroi follows in the footsteps of Aristotle to discover the creatures, places and ideas that inspired the philosopher in his pioneering work.

A film that examines the discoveries of Aristotle on the nature of the island of Lesbos and how it influenced his views on human biology.
