In a lifetime, the average person will take 58 holidays, meet 1700 friends and acquaintances, read 2100 books and watch 5800 films. Without memory, these events would remain just that - a series of unrelated events or things. But through memory, these events become autobiographical, transforming them into events which happened to me. How Does Your Memory Work? is a documentary exploring the staggering complexity of memory, something most of us take for granted.

This two-part series commemorates 200 years since the birth of Charles Darwin. It combines dramatic reconstruction of Darwin's voyage around the globe onboard The Beagle, from 1831 to 1836 (which provided his scientific observations culminating in the publication of the Theory of Evolution in 1859), with contemporary scientific analysis of his findings that both prove and disprove his understanding of evolutionary theory. The series sets out to show that Darwin's extraordinary precision and methodology remain a shining example for today's researchers in the fields of biology, geology and zoology.
