Thursday 24 April 2008 15:45-16:00 (Radio 4 FM)


Dr Robert Prescott searches for the final resting place of the ship aboard which Charles Darwin began to formulate the ideas which would eventually become his theory of evolution.

Prescott and his team drill down deep into the Essex mud to take samples from where they believe the ship now lies. A ship's timbers are there, covered by over a century of mud, but are they those of the Beagle? The team is joined on site by Prof Colin Pillinger, the man behind the Mars lander Beagle 2.

Followed by News.
