| Dangerously thought-provoking!
Darwin's Dangerous Idea is a three-part BBC program presented by Andrew Marr (best known for his political editorials) and is based on the book by Daniel Dennett. In his book, Dennett proposes that Darwinian evolutionary processes and natural selection are the guiding force to not only what we are today, but who we are.

Marr opens with "In this program I'm going to discover how Darwin opened our eyes to the beautiful but fragile relationship between all life on earth." Later, he asks "What's the connection between Abba's Anni-Frid Lyngstad and Charles Darwin?"... The answer is quite an interesting chunk of historical trivia; it is, however, important in the context of Dennett's theory.

A thoroughly engrossing and thought-provoking series guaranteed to fuel the fire of moral and religious debate.
