In 1938 the discovery of a large, unusual fish turned the scientific community on end. Dubbed a living fossil, the discovery of a coelacanth in South Africa shocked scientists around the world who thought this type of fish had died out millions of years prior during the process of evolution. Living fossils are organisms found preserved in the fossil record, which still exist in similar form today. If the core concepts of the theory of evolution presuppose change over time, then how can these living fossils exist for millions of years remaining virtually unchanged? Dr. Werner takes you around the world on a unique scientific expedition from remote dig sites and museums to the Australian Rainforest and more. Filmed in seven countries on three continents, and at dig sites, museums, and universities, this challenging resource critically examines the fossil evidence of Darwin's theory. Designed to accompany Dr. Carl Werner's text of the same name, the DVD is divided into short sections corresponding to most chapters in the book. Includes an interview with Dr. Werner. DVD features English, Spanish and German subtitles. Approx. 58 minutes.
