"The Mysterious Islands" and "The Voyage that Shook the World"

2 fantastic documentaries came out last year on Darwin, both are top notch worth the watch and extremely well done. However they differ very much in their approaches.

The Mysterious Islands is an adventure to Darwin's Eden, a modern day expedition to he Galapagos Islands, the expedition explores whether Darwin's interpretation of Galapagos hold water. The film is shot on the Red One camera, and the film is a visual and audio feast to behold. The imagery and music are simply breathtaking.

The Voyage that Shook the World is a more traditional documentary style film, it tracks not only Darwin's original voyage but also from Darwin's childhood to his death. It interviews many experts around the world and has a lot of reenactments.

The Galapagos Islands are the most incredible living museum of evolutionary changes, with a huge variety of exotic species (birds, land and sea animals, plants) and landscapes not seen anywhere else.
