Evolve - Sex

Episode 4


In the history of life on earth, sex may be the ultimate survival skill, because the bottom line is: reproduce or die. This episode looks at sex in its many forms, from sharks – among the first vertebrates to have intercourse – to dinosaurs that had to figure out how to join their giant bodies together to mate.

From the stick insect (that mates non-stop for 10 straight weeks) to macaques monkeys (about once an hour)… and finally to humans. This driving force of life comes in many forms. How will sex evolve in the future? Are we evolving beyond sex? In fact, is a time coming when we will be able to seize control of our own evolution… not via sex at all, but through genetic engineering?


It’s a tough, violent, and lethal world out there, and it’s been that way since the dawn of time. Roughly 99 percent of all species have become extinct. What enabled that other one percent to survive the cutthroat competition?

Their ability to…. EVOLVE.

Through a stunning combination of dramatizations, computer animations, live action nature footage and lab work; discover the biological and behavioural innovations that have kept us all on this Earth!

Hooray for sex! :D Added to play list!

Saw the episode on eyes and a little on the guts. Eyes was really fascinating, and how they evolved on dinosaurs.
