CBC's The Evolution of Charles Darwin

Back on November 11, 2009, I mentioned this:

“The Evolution of Charles Darwin,” a 4-part series on CBC Radio One: “Ideas pays tribute to Charles Darwin and celebrates the 150th anniversary of the publication of his transformational and contentious book, On the Origin of Species. Darwin’s theory of evolution through Natural Selection completely changed how we think about the world. In this 4-part series, Seth Feldmanguides us through the life and ideas of Charles Darwin, a creative genius. The series is produced by Sara Wolch.” Via Adrian.

There is now a CD version of the series, with a video preview:

– Part 1, The Prepared Mind:
From Darwin’s early years to his voyage of discovery on H.M.S. Beagle.

– Part 2, From The Beagle to the Book:
Darwin thinks his way to ‘The Origin of Species’.

– Part 3, Primates vs Primates:
What ‘The Origin of Species’ said, and what was said about it.

– Part 4, Darwin’s Enduring Legacy:
Why science and society today are still wrestling with Darwin’s big idea.

The CD set can be had here.
