Darwin’s theory was developed over a great many years and in flashbacks, the manner in which it developed is shown. He had many supporters and likely more critics. He knew that his ideas were radical and that they would conflict with religious thought on the subject of creation. In reviewing his thoughts however, he realizes that he can without much difficulty claim to have been the first to develop the theory. These events spur him on to publish his findings in his now famous book.
Plot: In 1858 Charles Darwin struggles to publish one of the most controversial scientific theories ever conceived, while he and his wife Emma confront family tragedy.

Required Viewing for Schools
Evangelical churches and schools should (but won’t) make this required viewing. Perhaps those misinformed and deluded millions who take the bible literally can learn something of the profound science in the Origin of Species and the honourable man who moved the world giant steps beyond mythology and superstition. Darwin is too little understood. This brave film is frank in its approach and does not skirt the religion issues. The writer obviously cared about the truth. Beautifully shot in Nova Scotia. Main actors are excellent. Not a bad performance anywhere. Bravo for an important story, well told. PBS should repeat and promote the film even more.
A Television film made by the National Geographic cable Channel.
Henry Ian Cusack & Frances O’Connor are Charles & Emma Darwin. John Bradshow directed John Goldsmith’s weak & ultimately dull script about Charles Darwin at a troubled time in this families life. Another anthropologist published an article similar to his yet unpublished famous book on evolution. At the same time there is serious illness in his family.
We also see some excellent scenes of animal life when he was exploring in the Beagle.
The above comes over as quite dull. Husband & wife talk & talk & remember exactly what they said a few years back.
My rating is higher than it should be because the scenery & settings are so beautiful.
