NatGeo's Darwin Celebration Starts Tonight - Sneak Peeks of Morphed

Tonight on the National Geographic Channel, the celebration of the anniversary of Darwin's 200th anniversary begins with three premiere episodes of "Morphed".

First, at 7pm eastern, you are invited to join a special live discussion on the topic of evolution and it's significance in today's science community, education and it's relationship to religion and theology.  The discussion will take place exclusively on the Inside NGC Blog with a panel of experts in the fields of biology, molecular science, and theology. 

If you have any questions for the discussion, get them in before hand here.  Then be sure to log back in at 7pm on the blog!

Now check out some sneak peeks at the awesome new series, "Morphed":

First, at 8pm eastern is "Morphed: From Dinosaur to Turkey", which digs 230 million years back into the fossil record to witness the emergence of the first dinosaur and follow different dinosaurs as they respond to changes in the earth's environment.

Then, at 9pm eastern, "Morphed: When Whales Had Legs".  This one takes a look at the environmental pressures that turned a wolf-like creature of shallow waters into a leviathan of the seas.

Last, at 10pm eastern, is "Morphed: Before They Were Bears".  Here we get to travel back 30 million years to watch the bear's dog-like ancestor climb down the trees of central Europe and set out on a journey that spanned the planet.

I got a chance to preview all three episodes and loved every single one. You won't want to miss any of this trio or the last two installments of the Darwin celebration which air on Tuesday, February 10th (Darwin's Secret Notebooks at 9pm and Explorer: Monster Fish of the Congo at 10pm). 

So make sure to tune in or at least save the space on your Tivo!
