NOVA and National Geographic Television present a two-hour drama on the crisis that compelled Darwin to publish his theory of evolution.
Nova and National Geographic present a dramatic 2-hour special on the father of modern biology.
In 1858 Charles Darwin received a letter from naturalist Alfred Wallace, explaining his own theory of evolution. This was the trigger event that led to the publication of Darwin's seminal theory on the origin of species.
Starring Henry Ian Cusick (Lost) and Frances OConnor (Mansfield Park, The Importance of Being Earnest, Steven Spielberg's Artificial Intelligence: AI), the two-hour drama will air in the US on Oct. 6, 2009, Darwin's Darkest Hour will coincide with the 200th anniversary of Darwin's birth and the 150th anniversary of his seminal work, On the Origin of the Species.
From The World's Science podcast to Nova, we'll deliver updates from these cutting edge programs. See a sample »
