Reviews of films, videos, and documentaries.

Film review: ‘Creation: the true story of Charles Darwin’

An entertaining film (if you ignore the paranormal nonsense).

Documentary review: ‘The Young Charles Darwin’

The life of Charles Darwin from his childhood in Shrewsbury to his return in 1836 from the Beagle voyage.

Documentary review: ‘Galápagos: the Islands that Changed the World’

Totally awesome three-part series about some rather special islands.

Film review: ‘The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists’

In which I dismiss any charges of historical inaccuracy against the latest Aardman animation.
