Description

This episode tells the story of genetics from ancient times to its true scientific beginnings in the 19th century. Humorous animation and other creative visuals illustrate the unsuccessful efforts of Aristotle, Darwin and others to solve the age-old puzzle of heredity. The focus then shifts to Gregor Mendel, the obscure 19th C. Austrian monk whose plant experiments laid the foundation for the science of genetics. His laws of Random Segregation and Independent Assortment are clearly and entertainingly explained, then reinforced by a Moxy Fruvous song. Shot in England and the Czech Republic.
