The Greatest Show on Earth
- The Evidence for Evolution
- Written by: Richard Dawkins
- Narrated by: Richard Dawkins, Lalla Ward
- Length: 14 hrs and 36 mins
The Greatest Show on Earth is a stunning counterattack on advocates of "Intelligent Design," explaining the evidence for evolution while exposing the absurdities of the creationist "argument". Dawkins sifts through rich layers of scientific evidence: from living examples of natural selection to clues in the fossil record; from natural clocks that mark the vast epochs wherein evolution ran its course to the intricacies of developing embryos; from plate tectonics to molecular genetics.

The account of why evolution is a fact, not a "mere theory". Well written.
Discusses the fundamentals of evolution; genes, natural selection, artificial selection, etc.. Dawkins provides a breadth of evidence ranging from controlled experiments to fossil records with many other stops along the way. Debunks the common rebuts of evolution which are often levied by evolution-deniers.
The narration by Richard & his wife Lalla is enjoyable. The two compliment each other well and prevent monotony for the listener.
