Great, but a bit too much
8 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

This is a great documentary series from Channel 4, hosted by professor Richard Dawkins, well-known darwinist.

The series mixes segments on the life and discoveries of Charles Darwin, the theory of natural selection and evolution, and Dawkins' attempts at convincing a group of school children that evolution explains the world around us better than any religion.

Most of the story line and the presentation is compelling, and the evidence for evolution is completely overwhelming. This, however, is also what limits the appeal of the series: Dawkins tries a bit too hard

  • a slightly less argumentative presentation of evolution would


probably serve Dawkins' cause better.
