This documentary tells the little-known story of how Darwin came to write his great masterpiece, The Origin of Species, a book that explains the wonderful diversity of the natural world, as derived from the death and the struggle of life.

In the twenty years he developed a bright idea into a revolutionary book, Darwin was through a personal struggle every bit as turbulent as that of nature he observed.

Fortunately, we left an extraordinary record of his brilliant ideas, observations of nature and touching expressions of love and affection for those around him.

He also wrote stories frank family tragedies, physical illness and the moments of doubt, while working for the publication of the book that would change the way we see the world.

The story has the advantage of Darwin’s secret notes and correspondence, reinforced by natural history film, the powerful images of the era and the contributions of the major contemporary biographers and scientists.
