Emeritus Professor Anthony Larkum from Sydney University talks about what launched Charles Darwin into a scientific career at Cambridge and how he was given the opportunity to go on the HMS Beagle.
Larkum is the author of A Natural Calling: Life, Letters and Diaries of Charles Darwin and William Darwin Fox. Listen to the podcast here or download the mp3.
