NatGeo's Darwin Celebration Continues Tonight! - Sneak Peek

The National Geographic Channel's celebration of Darwin's 200th birthday comes to a close tonight with 2 very special shows. 

First, we'll get to retrace Darwin's expedition beyond the Galapagos to uncover the forgotten evidence that inspired his revolutionary work by using his own diary and field notes as a travel guide.   We will see how fossils in Argentina, seashells in the Andes and the fish in the South Pacific helped him to cultivate his radical theory of evolution.

Check out a quick sneak peek into "Darwin's Secret Notebooks" which airs tonight at 9pm eastern:


Following "Secret Notebooks" is a special "Explorer:Monster Fish of the Congo" at 10pm eastern

Here you will join a team of adventurers and scientists as they travel deep into the heart of Africa's Congo River Basin in search of an elusive man-sized predator known as the tiger fish.  While locals believe this ravenous relative of the piranha is cursed, scientists believe the fearsome fish may hold the key to understanding the evolution of an extraordinary array of bizarre creatures found throughout the Congo. 

I had the opportunity to preview the specials and they're both fascinating.  I highly recommend them to anyone, no matter what your beliefs on the matter.  Very informative and most of all, fun adventures!

The Darwin 200th birthday celebration continues tonight starting at 9pm eastern on National Geographic Channel.  Don't miss it!
