Despite being identical twins, Adam and Neil Pearson look completely different. By conventional genetics, that should be impossible. But they share the faulty NF-1 gene, which for Adam caused uncontrolled tumours to grow on his face. For Neil, the gene caused short-term memory loss. In this powerful and personal film, Adam and Neil find out why their condition has affected them in such different ways. It's a journey that takes them back to the moment they separated in the womb, their experiences during childhood, through to their diets, in the search for the trigger that made them so different.

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.
