"Darwin’s Brave New World is the story of how four young voyagers to the Southern Hemisphere changed our world, forever. The epic adventures of Charles Darwin, Joseph Hooker, Thomas Huxley and Alfred Russel Wallace revolutionised science, turned society on its head and gave birth to an extraordinary theory about the evolution of life on earth.

In this brilliant three-part dramatised series, we take a fresh look at Charles Darwin’s oft-overlooked experiences in New Zealand, Australia and the Cocos & Keeling Islands and discover that these extraordinary places were crucial in formulating his radical theory of evolution.

Australasia was also critical in forging the lives and careers of Darwin’s greatest allies: Joseph Hooker, Thomas Huxley and Alfred Russel Wallace. These three men would support and defend Charles Darwin through years of illness, isolation, agonising self-doubt and religious crisis. Without their courage and tenacity, Darwin may never have published On the Origin of Species – his great work about evolution and a book which changed the way we understand our world and our place in it." Terry Meaden ("Origins" Group).
