This seven-part BBC drama series traced the life of naturalist Charles Darwin (1809-82), from his university days through his five-year exploratory voyage on the HMS Beagle to the controversy surrounding the 1859 publication of his landmark `On the Origin of Species.'

The programme is a Classic Maritime Adventure-come-Lavish Period Drama-come-Natural History Epic-come-Scientific Voyage of Discovery-come-Exotic South American Travelogue-come-Giant Tortoise Cookery Extravaganza. This series really does seem to encompass an awful lot.
