Out of this World 3D space exploration from History.

At 4.6 billion years old, the Solar System is our solid, secure home in the Universe. But how did it come to be?

We trace the system's birth from a thin cloud of dust and gas. Shocked by a nearby supernova, the pull of gravity and natural rotation spun it into a flat disc from which the Sun and planets coalesced. It all happened in the space of 700 million years, during which the planets jockeyed for position, dodging the brutal bombardment of deadly asteroids and setting into the neat, stable system that we now realise might be a rarity in the universe.

Explore the history of our planets for the first time in spectacular 3-D!

The combination of science, spectacular CGI, informed experts and fascinating subject matter makes this a highly sought after release.

Very expensive at £20. Worth about £5. It's ok, provided you can abide the annoying yankee nasalisation and mispronounciation of English. Pro-do planeds were made from medals (Korean war or what?). Also it is aimed at an American audience, so the factual explanations and intellectual content is about the level of a British 12 year old. It is also in obsolete measuring systems like fahrenheit and people's feet etc. unknown to most Europeans under 50. It is too simple for European adults, so don't waste your shekels. Also the box states you need "active-shutter" glasses to view the 3D content. This is also misleading and inaccurate. as the disk is viewable on either a passive or active 3d TV, except that the 3d is hardly discernible anyway. Waste of time, except you get it for the kids with a Yankee to English dictionary.

Not as entertaining as expected, but way more educational. 3D works really well on this kind of product, if you want to learn about the solar system formation with stunning visuals you can't go wrong

The content of the film was poor, there was more footage of fair ground rides and making candy floss than stars etc.t The 3D effects were poor, the cost of the film was far to high for the content. I don,t think the film was worth more than a pound. I will not bother to waste my time watching it again.

I have 6 seasons of the universe. This is a 3D part of one of the seasons, space looks better in 3D well worth buying.

I bought this in the hope that it would be educational and that my 8 year old son would like it. In those terms it was a success in that the 3d effects were Ok and it explained an order of events in simple terms.
However, any adult with a learning age of more than 10 should think twice before buying this. It is American history channel standard information pitched at people with an attention span of about 60 seconds.

I loved the subject matter and the 3D treatment of The Universe! The big issue with the DVD though is that it's designed for TV broadcast, so after every section, the last minute or so of the previous section is repeated which is very annoying. Also, it seems like each individual DVD is only one episode of the entire series which seems wasteful!

This is a great 3D Blu Ray, when watching it you gets the sence of depth and actually feel like you are in space. The narration is good, animation is top notch, you won't be dissapointed with this purchase. The 3D im immernces the viewer into space and the surround sound is just good. Highly recommend.
