"Proteus" - film about Ernst Haeckel's work on radiolarians

Faculty of 1000's newsletter online (The Scientist) featured a documentary by David Lebrun on the life and work of Ernst Haeckel.  As it happens, I had written a post  back in July 2008 about Haeckel's book of drawings of radiolarians (Kunstformen der Natur) available online, which is why I recalled his name. There's a clip of Lebrun's documentary with the article - all animated with Haeckel's images - mind-boggling!
