What Darwin Never Knew

Last night on PBS was NOVA‘s 2-hour program on evo-devo, “What Darwin Never Knew” (website). I watched most of it, but did not get to pay too much attention as I was also entertaining my toddler son. So, here are thoughts from Brian and PZ. Both rightly note the human-centric portion of the show (why can’t all organisms be considered unique?), and I agree with Brian that the program gives us a history of Darwin and his evolutionary theory in a vacuum, as if no other historical figures are important.

Still, it’s worth a watch, and you can do so here.
