Galapagos is one of the wonder places of the world, a laboratory of evolution. Because of Darwin it is always a historic place for any zoologist. Anyone interested in the history of life on Earth and how it came to be really has to come here. David Attenborough
Located at the confluence of three ocean currents, the Galápagos Islands and the surrounding marine reserve are a unique living museum and showcase of evolution . Ongoing seismic and volcanic activity, together with the extreme isolation of the islands, has led to the development of unusual animal life that directly inspired Charles Darwin s theory of evolution by natural selection following his visit in 1835.
In this stunning series, David Attenborough peels back the Earth s surface to shed light on the hidden forces that have built and shaped one of its most amazing places. This landmark three-part documentary introduces us to a range of extraordinary creatures from the iconic Giant Tortoise to the courting Waved Albatrosses while the use of 3D technology allows us to see all this as if we are actually there. The result is a truly mesmerising exploration of the world s most miraculous landscape, plant life and animals.
