Not Just a Puppet! The Animated Life Of Alfred Russel Wallace

Have you seen this documentary?

The Animated Life Of A.R. Wallace.

Produced by Flora Litchman and Sharon Shattuck and narrated by George Beccaloni of the  Natural History Museum London and Andrew Berry of Harvard University, it celebrates the life and work of Alfred Russell Wallace who along with Charles Darwin discovered the principles of evolution through natural selection in the mid 1800's.

A fine example of creative science outreach using paper puppet animation. Beautifully produced and narrated.
