Synopsis:

This series explains how the diversity of life on Earth has developed over millions of years, through a combination of gradual change and dramatic events.

It looks in depth at biological adaptation over time. Topics covered include: genetic variation and mutation; the role of environmental change both gradual and catastrophic; competition for resources; the distribution of organisms; the extinction of species; geological and fossil evidence; comparative anatomy; theories of evolution; and scientists at work today.
