Description

As On the Origin of Species was published in 1859, Darwin continued his experiments, looking for parallels between plant and animal life. In this program we discover why Darwin attempted to chloroform a Venus fly trap and recreate an experiment following the slow movements of climbing plants. Darwin also expanded his work on reproduction, discovering that the offspring of self fertilised plants do not fare so well as those of cross fertilised plants; this worried Darwin, who had married his first cousin! Another brilliant examination of the man and his work, brought to life through his experiments.
