Darwin and The Beagle’s Scandal (2018)


Retrace Darwin’s voyage aboard the HMS Beagle and uncover the journey’s surprising backstory.


Before he wrote the book that revolutionised the way people understood evolution, a young Charles Darwin found himself, by chance, on a strange sea voyage.

This is the story of the HMS Beagle, which travelled from Great Britain to survey South America’s coastline, but also became part of its Captain Fitzroy’s flawed social experiment.

It is a tale of bold exploration, tragic miscalculation, the death of a civilisation, and the birth of Darwinism.
