What on Earth Evolved? 100 species that changed the world

Christopher Lloyd takes us on an amazing journey through the story of life from its beginnings at the dawn of evolution right through to the present day.


Christopher Lloyd's new book What on Earth Evolved? is an amazing journey through the story of life from its beginnings at the dawn of evolution right through to the present day. Watch, listen and join in to his first public lecture since the book's launch and see history reveals itself through the lens of 100 incredible species that have shaped the world we live in - some still living, some long extinct. Along the way you will encounter everything from smallpox to slime, grapes to grass, beetles to bananas and mosquitoes to maize.

Where do humans fit in? What has been our impact? Witness how the rival systems of natural and artificial selection constantly wrestle for evolutionary supremacy. Part homage to Charles Darwin, part critique, this talk may change the way you see the world forever.
