Film on evolution?

I received this comment and thought I might tap into the community here:

Ok I’m really sorry but this has nothing to do with the above post. I’m truly desperate to get my hands on a good pro-evolution film or something that explains clearly what its all about. All I seem to get locally is a bunch of bullshit about evolution vs. creationism. I’ve gotten a few good books mainly Dawkins, Steve Gould and Steve Jones but I’d love to see a good evolution film for once any reccomendations?

The only things I can think of are the PBS series Evolution and God, Darwin and Dinosaurs.

    The HHMI holiday lecture series last December was on Evolution, with Sean Carroll as one of the presenters. You can get it free from the HHMI website.

    Dawkins presented a BBC Horizon special called “The Blind Watchmaker” back in the 80’s (which, aside from it’s subject matter of evolution, is worth watching just to see a young Dawkins parading around in his shorts).
    Although, afaik, not available anywhere for purchase, I have seen it listed on various Bittorrent sites.

    Most of David Attenborough’s TV series have evolution as an underlying theme, though there isn’t much on the ‘theory’.
