Children mark 200 years of Darwin


School children separated by thousands of kilometres have been linking up to remember the life and work of Charles Darwin on the 200th anniversary of his birth.

With the help of the BBC's World Class project, pupils in Darwin's home county of Kent have been comparing notes with children on the Galapagos Islands, the location that provided much of Darwin's inspiration for his theory of evolution.

Science correspondent Christine McGourty reports from Down House in Kent, Charles Darwin's home.
