The Forgotten Voyage: The Story of Alfred Russel Wallace

The Forgotten Voyage was the dramatised story of Alfred Russel Wallace, the 19th century naturalist who published the theory of evolution by natural selection together with Charles Darwin in 1858 - more than a year before Darwin's book "On the Origin of Species" was released.

This film was written by Elaine Morgan and directed by Peter Crawford. Actor Tim Preece played the part of Alfred Russel Wallace, the 19th Century naturalist. It was Wallace's eight year voyage of discovery to the East Indies in search of wildlife that prompted Darwin to publish his revolutionary theory on the evolution of life by Natural Selection.
