Charles Darwin was born 200 years ago - his book Origin of the Species was written 150 years ago. So 2009 is a very significant year to consider the impact of his life and the impact of the theory of evolution.
An exciting new documentary on his life has been produced - it asks the question 'If Charles Darwin lived today and knew what science now knows, would he have come up with the same ideas?'
The film features a wide range of experts - from people supporting Darwin's ideas to those supporting creation.
The film is called 'The Voyage that shook the world'. It has been produced by an independent media company. Creation Ministries has supported the production.
The film will be shown in some cinemas around Australia over the next month - details below...
