The inspiration behind Darwin's theory of evolution, the Galapagos Islands are a living laboratory; a geological conveyor belt that has given birth to and seen the death of many species of plants and animals. Presented in a pioneering new visual style combined with exhilarating cinematography, breath-taking series ‘Galapagos' examines the spectacular variety of wildlife and evokes the different characters of the islands. As the western islands rise up from the sea offering a chance of life, the eastern islands sink back beneath the waves guaranteeing only death. Between the two are the middle islands; fertile, lush land in its prime that contains an incredible diversity of life. Nowhere else on the Earth are the twin processes of creation and extinction of species so starkly apparent. Savage, bizarre, hellish yet beautiful; experience the ever changing magnificence of the islands that changed our view of life on Earth and of ourselves.
