The Animated Life of A. R. Wallace
This animated short video illustrates the life of Alfred Russel Wallace, who independently formulated the theory of evolution by natural selection at the same time as Charles Darwin.
The video uses animated paper puppets and narration by experts in the field to tell A. R. Wallace’s story, from his early days growing up in England to his voyages with Henry Walter Bates and later adventures in the Malay Archipelago.
The video is presented here with permission from Sweet Fern Productions.
