The twentieth anniversary of the groundbreaking PBS/NOVA documentary series Evolution is approaching, and Kenneth R. Miller — who along with National Center for Science Education's Eugenie C. Scott served as a spokesperson for the series — has written a remembrance and appreciation of this occasion.

Miller is Professor of Biology and Royce Family Professor for Teaching Excellence at Brown University; he also serves as president of NCSE's board of directors.

The remembrance includes links to all 7 episodes as well as internal links. It begins with the series introduction, an exchange between Charles Darwin and ship/s captain Robert Fitzroy from the series. Miller describes this scene as "unforgettable."

Miller's essay is a lovely remembrance and I hope you find time to read it.

h/t NCSE about which here.
