Sam, a 7-year-old tortoise, loves to hear his Grandad Charlie tell stories about different animals and why they are the way that they are.
The stories that Grandad Charlie tells have been passed down to him through generations of tortoises; they started out when a small tortoise overheard them many many years ago.
Each story has one or two key ideas based on Darwin’s theories and is relevant to the science curriculum for 6 to 9 year olds. For example; animals change over time and different animals have different useful features such as trunks or shells. ( 13 episodes x 5 minutes for the BBC)
