Radio - Melvyn Bragg & 'The Darwinian Sistine Chapel'


From early January 2009

The BBC begins a series of programmes on Darwin. Melvyn Bragg kicks off the season with a four-part documentary asking why Darwin's writings remain so influential.


Other offerings include 'The Darwinian Sistine Chapel', which charts artist Tania Kovats's project of decorating the Natural History Museum's ceiling based on Darwinian theories, in the manner of Michelangelo's vision of creation in the Vatican.
