Possibly one of the best space series ive ever seen, Carl Sagan's Cosmos being the only one that rivals it. I must admit I took a while to warm to Prof. Brian Cox but now i find he is a joy to watch, his passion and enthusiasm for cosmology is enthralling. This series is more in depth that Prof. Stephen hawking's Universe (which is more of a beginners guide to space) and I highly advise anyone with even the tiniest interest in space to purchase this truly remarkable series.
It's an absolutely brilliant show. And Professor Brian Cox is pretty hot.
Out of this world.
This is an excellent program and professor Brian Cox does a very good job at explaining the more intricate parts of our solar system and the science behind it.
I highly recommend this as there is something for everyone from the novice to the more advanced space nerds.
Buy and enjoy!
