The best documentary-series of 1978
3 May 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was the best documentary-series of 1978. It is educational and directed with purpose and adventurism - combining history, geography, science. It investigates the implications of Darwin's theories cogently. The episodes featuring the Brazilian rain-forest and the Argentinian pampas conjure up the purest of visions of Latin American natural wonders. Darwin's encounter with the Argentinian caudillo figure, General Rosas, on the pampas seems to take the narrative to a different plain and is one of dozens of privileged moments within the series in general. Malcolm Stoddard is most impressive as Darwin and the costumes and period detail are excellent. Worth mentioning is 1972's The Darwin Adventure, starring Nicholas Clay and Ian Richardson and directed by the Californian, Jack Couffer - an adventure film which also takes you places.
