About this deal

That first book was published on Charles Darwin’s 170th birthday, a fitting tribute to the greatest idea anyone has ever had. Their acute sense of vision led to them standing erect to spot predators, leaving their hands free to bear weapons. By the late afternoon, you ride at last into the lower gorge where the Colorado River runs green between high rock walls. It’s not simply that we have observed more of nature with ever increasingly sophisticated technology. David Attenborough's unforgettable meeting with gorillas became an iconic moment for millions of television viewers.

Several special filming techniques were devised to obtain some of the footage of rare and elusive animals.

By the time he reaches the Colorado River bed, the geological strata are 2,000 million years old—yet there are no fossils.

Ebooks fulfilled through Glose cannot be printed, downloaded as PDF, or read in other digital readers (like Kindle or Nook). The deepest cleft that exists in the earth’s surface is the Grand Canyon in the western United States. Once there, they had changed, as generation succeeded generation, to suit their new homes until they became their present species. Here on the islands, where there was little vegetation, one species fed on seaweed and clung to rocks among the surging waves with unusually long and powerful claws. Eventually they are turned to stone, but they retain the outward shape that they had in life, albeit sometimes distorted.It remains the key to our understanding of the natural world and it enables us to recognise that life has a long and continuous history during which organisms, both plant and animal, have changed, generation by generation, as they colonised all parts of the world. But then the idea formed in my mind that a group of us might make a series of films that portrayed animals in a slightly different way. He was fascinated to discover that the Galapagos animals bore a general resemblance to those he had seen on the mainland, but differed from them in detail. Later discoveries about genetics, molecular biology, population dynamics and behaviour have given it new dimensions.
