Darwin is one
of mankinds greatest thinkers. His extensive scientific research,
which culminated in the publication of the theory of evolution in
1859, shook man's age old belief in being the chosen ones - the
fruit of "divine creation" and proved that man had developed
through a long evolutionary process..
Mankind was no longer the exceptional creation of God, but the result of a process of adaptation which had been taking place over millions of years. Many of the observations which brought Darwin to this new and shocking conclusion were made during his long voyage onboard the Beagle, a British ship which took him around the world in a voyage which lasted from 1831 to 1836. Two hundred years after Darwin's birth and 150 years after the publication of his famous book "On the Origin of Species", the German-Australian-French Docudrama reconstructs the naturalists' voyage around the world and asks contemporary scientists why his ideas still play a part in science today.
