Charles Darwin (1809-1882) and his legacy have achieved sacred-cow iconic status throughout much of the modern world. This short 52-minute video not only illuminates less-well known aspects of the great biologist's life and career, but also serves to return him to a more human dimension. The filmmakers accomplish this through a dozen and a half short, ironic vignettes, all taking place in the great man's office/study; each vignette is introduced with titles in quaint Victorian English.
