Darwin's Struggle: The Evolution of The Origin of Species

2 February, 9pm BBC Four

In his greatest work, 'On the Origin of Species', Charles Darwin reveals how the wonderful variety of the natural world emerges out of death and the 'struggle of life'. But as he developed his brilliant idea, Darwin went through a personal struggle that mirrored the natural world he observed.

The programme tells this story with the benefit of Darwin's secret notes and correspondence, powerful imagery from the time, and insights from biographers and scientists.
