The is an excellent drama by the National Georgraphic on one time period in the life of Charles Darwin, one of the world's greatest scientific minds. Darwin was facing some major challenges if life, both scientific and personal - ailing children and death of some. He was portrayed as a great scientist, a good father, and a lucky husband with an understanding and devoted wife, Emma. Not to be missed if you are a fan of his.
