In the vastness of the Pacific Ocean, there is a paradise unlike any other. Amongst these enchanted volcanic islands, life has played out in isolation from the rest of the world. The result is a biological wonderland of magic and discovery. Two hundred years after Charles Darwin set foot on the shores of the Galapagos Islands, Sir David Attenborough travels to this wild and mysterious archipelago. It was amongst its flora and fauna that Darwin formulated his groundbreaking theories on evolution. Today's scientists continue to make life-changing discoveries as they explore the Galapagos Islands' evolutionary history. With unique access, Sir David Attenborough changes the way we see the Galapagos forever. The inspiration behind Darwin's theory of evolution, the Galapagos Islands are a living laboratory - a geological conveyor belt that has given birth to, and seen the death of, many species of plants and animals. Presented in a pioneering new visual style combined with exhilarating cinematography, this series examines the spectacular variety of wildlife and evokes the different characters of the islands.
