Darwinism, Social Engineering and Lark Rise to Candleford

Dr Stephen Hayes has an interesting article over at CSM on the BBC programme Lark Rise to Candleford, which he believes included a blatant piece of Darwin propaganda in a light entertainment drama. Social Engineering anyone?

Yes, I agree that it was blatant Darwinist propoganda. However it was not just the underlying plot that was so bad. The storyline and the acting in that episode was so dreadful that it is likely that many people like myself will have turned off never to watch it again.
