The Weirdness of Evolution | Evolution Explained with Richard Dawkins

Feb 12, 2019

In 1991 Richard Dawkins presented a series of lectures on life, the universe, and our place in it as part of the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures for Children. With brilliance and clarity, Dawkins unravels an educational gem that will mesmerize young and old alike. Illuminating demonstrations, wildlife, virtual reality, and special guests (including Douglas Adams) all combine to make this collection a timeless classic.

The Royal Institution Christmas Lectures for Children were founded by Michael Faraday in 1825, with himself as the inaugural lecturer. The entire 1991 lecture series featuring Richard Dawkins was originally aired by the BBC, but is now available free online, courtesy of The Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science.

Originally broadcast as The Royal Institution Christmas Lectures for Children, 1991.
