Another Fantastic Documentary From David Attenborough
29 July 2009 | by See all my reviews

This documentary is so perfectly done and all about facts, it is one of the most important references for the controversial issue of evolution. It's simply the approach of science to explain evolution to whoever wants to listen.

The producer/narrator being himself, David Attenborough uses very well done graphics and clips of animals from all around the world and narration as perfect as usual. Documentary starts with explaining the religious look at evolution and then explains every major question to the Darwin's "Origin of Species" scientifically.

Being a fourth year biology student; the movie is the summary of a whole year's Evolution class. It definitely is a must see if you are at least honest to yourself enough about learning facts of this highly controversial issue.
