From geology to biology

How did we get here? For centuries, humans have wondered about the origins of the universe and how life on Earth came into being. A meteor, the big bang, a primordial soup? In this video from BBC Earth, Brian Blessed narrates a love-letter to life, revelling in Darwin’s theory of evolution and the cosmic connection shared by all living things.

Life, as Blessed says, became earth’s first great explorer. From plants and slime molds to amphibians, reptiles and birds, this video beautifully captures the enchanting magic of the different stages in evolution on earth.
