In another acclaimed Wonders series, Professor Brian Cox turns his knowledge and enthusiasm to explore the science that enables life to thrive on Earth. This beautiful and definitive series reveals how, 3.7 billion years ago, basic scientific laws gave birth to the most complex, diverse and unique force in the universe – life. Professor Brian Cox reveals how light, gravity, time, matter and energy became the building blocks of everything, from the smallest microbe on Earth to the biggest galaxy. Wonders of Life tells the story of the amazing diversity and adaptability of life through the laws that govern it: from the dance of chromosomes as cells divide to the spark of electricity that causes muscles to move. Visiting spectacular locations including the flooded Taal Volcano on the Philippine island of Luzon, the Australian outback and the Borneo rainforests, it uncovers the secrets of life in the most unexpected locations and poses the question: could the conditions for life be repeated elsewhere in the universe?
