Growing Up in the Universe - Richard Dawkins

Oxford professor Richard Dawkins presents a series of lectures on life, the universe, and our place in it. With brilliance and clarity, Dawkins unravels an educational gem that will mesmerize young and old alike. Illuminating demonstrations, wildlife, virtual reality, and special guests (including Douglas Adams) all combine to make this collection a timeless classic. The Royal Institution Christmas Lectures for Children were founded by Michael Faraday in 1825, with himself as the inaugural lecturer. The 1991 lecturer was Richard Dawkins whose five one-hour lectures, originally televised by the BBC.

Solving the Riddle
Extract wrote:Was Darwin the most revolutionary scientist ever? If by revolutionary we mean the scientist whose discovery initiated the most seismic overturning of pre-existing science, the honour would at least be contested by Newton, Einstein and the architects of Quantum Theory. Those same physicists might have outclassed Darwin in sheer intellectual fire-power but Darwin probably did revolutionise the world view of people outside science more comprehensively than any other scientist. He may be only one plausible candidate for the most important or most revolutionary scientist ever, but Darwin has a strong claim to be the most seditious.

Darwins Brave New World
DoctorE wrote:“Darwins Brave New World is the story of how four young voyagers to the southern hemisphere, Charles Darwin, Joseph Hooker, Thomas Huxley and Alfred Russel Wallace revolutionised science and gave birth to an extraordinary theory about the evolution of life on earth.

Featuring a cast of Australian and Canadian actors and commentators such as controversial author and Oxford academic, Richard Dawkins, the Canadian scientist and broadcaster, David Suzuki and Australian scholar and author, Iain McCalman, from the University of Sydney, this brilliant drama-documentary tells the story of Charles Darwins struggle to produce one of the greatest scientific theories of our age and the roles played in it by Hooker, Huxley and Wallace – Darwins fellow voyagers to the southern hemisphere.”

It looks at the Y chromosome, that's passed down from male to male, and tracks the marker mutations to map our ancestors' journey. It's how we conquered the Earth in just the last 59,000 years.

Origins

Paleontologist Des Collins leads this exciting exploration into the beginnings of advanced life on the planet, which can fortunately be studied by visiting primitive shores where creatures that lived hundreds of millions of years ago still flourish today. Collins's destination: Burgess Shale in Canada's Rocky Mountains. Advanced computer technology enhances the discovery as viewers get close to some of the most fascinating small beasts ever.

Evolution

From the development of the four-limbed body plan, to the journey of animal life from water to land, to the emergence of humans, "Great Transformations" focuses on the important evolutionary changes that triggered Earth's incredible diversity.

Darwin's Legacy
"Light will be thrown..." With these modest words, Charles Darwin launched a sweeping new theory of life in his epic book, On the Origin of Species (1859). The theory opened eyes and minds around the world to a radical new understanding of the flora and fauna of the planet. Here, Darwin showed for the first time that no supernatural processes are necessary to explain the profusion of living beings on earth, that all organisms past and present are related in a historical branching pattern of descent, and that human beings fall into place quite naturally in the web of all life. Now, 150 years later and 200 years after Darwins birth, we celebrate the amazingly productive vision and reach of his theory. In this Fall Quarter course, we will meet weekly with leading Darwin scholars from around the country to learn about Darwins far-reaching legacy in fields as diverse as anthropology, religion, medicine, psychology, philosophy, literature, and biology. With such a broad reach across the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities, no wonder the theory of evolution by natural selection has been called the single best idea, ever. Presented by the Stanford Continuing Studies Program.

New series looks good



There’s no doubt that we Homo sapiens are a pretty incredible species. But how did we end up this way? One of Australia’s most respected (and hilarious) evolutionary biologists, Darren Curnoe from the University of New South Wales (UNSW) Science in Australia, will be hosting a new YouTube series that breaks down the evolution of humans, from our ape ancestors to farming and the modern traits that make our species unique.

Along the way, the UNSW TV series, which launches tomorrow, will break down some common evolution myths and answering some enduring questions, such as whether races are real, why humans are the only species that cooks and what the arrival of farming really did to our bodies.

Check out the teaser above and subscribe here to get a new episode each fortnight. We can’t wait to watch!

Dolorian wrote:

I have a slight quibble with the rigour of the description of the adult fish-size experiment, because the sound track only mentions the result of one of the three groups - the fish that got smaller when smaller fish were selected. To rule out the possibility that the fish would get smaller even without selection of smaller adults, the results of the other two groups should have been mentioned. This may sound a bit pedantic, but science has to be pedantic about controls to avoid the problem of confirmation bias.

Interesting video showing human evolution. Actually a promo for a book, the author of which is the human at the end.

A most evolved electron.
