About the show: "Origins of Life"

Origins of Life deals with some of the most profound questions of life science, the origin of life and the human search for life beyond Earth. Starting with the Big Bang, in chronological order, the show deals with pre-biotic chemistry in the universe, the formation of stars and solar systems, and the first life on Earth. Furthermore, Origins of Life covers the great extinctions and our search for (primitive) life beyond planet Earth. Origins of Life is a motivational journey through time and a celebration of life on Earth. It features many recent discoveries related to life science, demonstrating to the youth that if there were ever a time when science made its greatest advances, it would be right now. Narrated by Lord Robert Winston.
