This week on PRI/BBC World Science:
This month, the movie Creation opened in theaters across the United States.
The film chronicles the life and work of Charles Darwin.
The movie is directed by Jon Amiel. Paul Bettany stars as Darwin. Jennfer Connelly plays Darwin’s wife, Emma.
Creation is based on a biography written by Charles Darwin’s great great grandson, Randal Keynes.
Keynes is a conservation biologist who lives in London.
The World’s science correspondent, Rhitu Chatterjee, spoke with Keynes about his famous ancestor and the experience of seeing his book turned into a movie.

Now it’s your turn to chat with Randal Keynes. Join the conversation — it’s just to the right.
* Did Keynes’s famous pedigree prompt his decision to become a conservation biologist?

* Have you seen the movie Creation? Did it change your view of Darwin as a man?
