From simple cells in the seas to fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals and eventually humans; this we are told has been the evolutionary tree of life. So how does this theory fit in with all we can see around us? After thousands of years of observable evidence and advances in biological research do Darwin's evolutionary ideas measure-up to the discoveries of modern science today? Although millions of fossils have been found worldwide, still no fossils of any transitional species have been discovered. Could it be that quite simply, there aren't any, and that in fact the millions of creatures on earth today have never been able to change into many different kinds of animals as Darwin believed? Now you can see for yourself and understand the intricate designs of nature's vast array of creatures and our place among them in this wonderfully created world. From Egypt and the depths of the Red Sea to the Islands of Malta, the Cape of Good Hope and the Savannas of South Africa. Life's Story two is a factual and visual feast from beginning to end. It takes you on an incredible documentary journey of discovery to unravel some of the most amazing mysteries of the natural world. In this programme you will learn about the navigation techniques and defence mechanisms of marine life, the complex behaviour of birds, the differences between apes, monkeys and humans, "ape-men" hoaxes, and how some of the largest land mammals feed and digest their food. Many unusual, rare and endangered species are featured in this programme including animal behaviour never filmed before.
