Celebrate Darwin and the Origin of Species with NOVA this Fall!

This fall, NOVA is celebrating the 200th anniversary year of Darwin's birth and the 150th anniversary of the publication of his famous book the Origin of Species with three evolution-themed programs.

Each film will approach the topic of evolution in a different way. To kick offNOVA's fall season on October 6, Henry Ian Cusick (Lost) and Frances O'Connor (Mansfield Park) star in Darwin's Darkest Hour, a two-hour scripted drama that presents the remarkable story behind the birth of Darwin's radically controversial theory of evolution and reveals his deeply personal crisis: whether to publish his earthshaking ideas, or to keep quiet to avoid potential backlash from the Church. On November 3, 10 and 17, NOVA premieres Becoming Human, a three-part special on human evolution. The series combines interviews with world-renowned anthropologists and paleoanthropologists and the most recent, groundbreaking discoveries with vivid images of our earliest ancestors to present a comprehensive picture of our human past. Then, on December 29What Darwin Never Knew  reveals answers to evolutionary questions that even Darwin couldn't explain. Scientists are beginning to expose nature's biggest secrets on the genetic level, with the hope of one day answering the crucial question: How does evolution really work?
