Charles Darwin centenary celebration

With Charles Darwin's 200th coming up rapidly, and a major re-vamp of Down House about to begin (though the present offering is wonderful if you want to see it before the season closes on 31st October),
I would like to plead with the BBC to issue their wonderful seven-part biographical series 'The Voyage of Charles Darwin' on DVD so we can all buy a copy. This series has been woefully underused. I believe it was only repeated once - over Christmas at breakfast time, an impossible time for mums such as I was at that time.
PLEASE ISSUE IT AT THIS AUSPICIOUS TIME!
Anyone who agrees, perhaps you could add to this conversation.

Well, I am all for celebrating Darwin, but this is perhaps the wrong place for this thread if you want anyone to notice it - only gurus or retired gurus like me, or some members of small vocal minorities, are likely to see it...

You could try asking if anyone wants to celebrate over at <./>Askh2g2</.>, or you could perhaps drum up support from half of the people found in the conversation about Dawkins' God Delusion book which can be found at F19585?thread=4005961&skip=13560&show=20 .

Welcome to h2g2 btw smiley - biggrin.

smiley - cheersvp
