Darwin's Brave New World

Image 1 / 5

‘Darwin's Brave New World' follows the story of four young voyagers' who sailed to the Southern Hemisphere and changed the world as we know it. The epic adventures of Charles Darwin, Joseph Hooker, Thomas Huxley and Alfred Russel Wallace revolutionised science, turned society on it's head and gave birth to an extraordinary theory about the evolution of life on earth. In this brilliant three-part series, we take a look at Charles Darwin's experiences in New Zealand, Australia and the Keeling Islands and discover that these extraordinary places were crucial in formulating his radical theory of evolution. We also see how Darwin's greatest allies, were his co-sailors and had it not been for their courage and support, Darwin may never have published On the Origin of Species, which became his life's great work.
