Dawkins on Darwin & Channel 4’s ‘Genius of Darwin’

You can almost feel the Darwin fever as we near the 150th anniversary of the publishing of ‘On the Origin of Species‘. Channel 4 in the UK recently aired this special interview with Dawkisquawks talking about the life and work of Darwin. Their site is very good.

The whole lot has been posted to YouTube, but I doubt it will be there for long, so get on over and save it:

As Dawkins is wont to do, it is very long: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6.

Channel 4 is also running a new series called “The Genius of Darwin“, so keep an eye out for that:

Here is episode 1: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5. And here’s the whole thing on GoogleVideo

Here is episode 2: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5. It’s not on GoogleVideo yet.

Episode 3 should be up next week.

I recently made another post about ‘On the Origin…’, so head over there for more links. And if you feel like testing the strength of your bookshelf, I can recommend Dawkins’ newest book, The Oxford Book of Modern Science Writing.
