These five short films, produced in conjunction with The New York Times, bring to life five historical scientific discoveries and the people behind them: Alfred Russel Wallace and his contribution to the concept of natural selection; Antonie van Leeuwenhoek's microscope; Alfred Wegener and the idea of continental drift; Mary Leakey and the Laetoli footprints; and Marjorie Courtenay Latimer's discovery of the coelacanth "fossil fish."

Now available on DVD.
