In 1859 Charles Darwin published "On the Origin of the Species". In it he argued that all of life on earth was the product of undirected natural processes. Time, chance and natural selection.
Since Darwin, biologists have relied on such processes to account for the origin of living things. Yet today, this approach is being challenged as never before. Unlocking the Mystery of Life tells the story of contemporary scientists who are advancing the powerful but controversial idea: the theory of intelligent design.
Using state of the art computer animation, Unlocking the Mystery of Life transports you into the interior of the living cell to explore systems and machines that bear the unmistakeable hallmarks of intelligent design.
This compelling documentary examines an idea with the power to revolutionise our understanding of life and unlock the mystery of its origin.
