In 1859, Charles Darwin published, "On the Origin of Species." In it, he argued that all of life on earth was the product of undirected natural processes -- time, chance, and natural selection.

Since Darwin, biologists have relied on such processes to account for the origin of living things. Yet today, this approach is being challenged as never before.

"Unlocking the Mystery of Life" is the story of contemporary scientists who are advancing a powerful, but controversial, idea -- the theory of "intelligent design." It is a theory based upon compelling biochemical evidence.

Through state-of-the-art computer animation, Unlocking the Mystery of Life transports you into the interior of the living cell to explore systems and machines that bear the unmistakable hallmarks of design. Discover the intricacy of a microscopic bacterial rotary motor, which spins at 100,000 rpm.

Within the cell nucleus explore the wonder of DNA, a threadlike molecule that stores instructions to build the essential components of every living organism. It is part of a biological information processing system more complex and more powerful than any computer network.

This remarkable documentary examines the scientific case for intelligent design -- an idea with the power to revolutionize our understanding of life...and to unlock the mystery of its origin.
