NOVA on Darwin

National Geographic’s two-hour movie on Charles Darwin, partly filmed at Prescott House Museum, and Uniacke Estate Museum Park earlier this year (and using microscopes and other props from Acadia University) will be aired on PBS on Tuesday Oct 6. Called “Darwin’s Darkest Hour”, here’s a promo-clip of the film from Youtube


In 1858 Charles Darwin received a letter from naturalist Alfred Wallace, explaining his own theory of evolution. This was the trigger event that led to the publication of Darwin’s seminal theory on the origin of species.
