Le Grand Prix des Médias 2013 de CB News a décerné le Prix de la meilleure émission de radio à « Sur les épaules de Darwin » de Jean Claude Ameisen. Merci à tous.

Les couchants et les générations.Les jours, dont aucun ne fut le premier. […]Le soleil comme un lion sur le sable, […]Les traces des longues migrations. […]Les formes des nuages dans le désert.Chaque remord, chaque larme.Toutes choses qui furent nécessairespour que nos mains se rencontrent.Jorge Luis Borges . Les causes.
