Unfortunately, it also raised countless questions, confusing even our most brilliant scientists. Beginning on the Galapagos Islands and venturing into the frozen heart of the Arctic, the NOVA crew watches as scientists use genetics to find out just how many of Darwin's radical theories still hold water today.
