This superb four-disc collection brings together two fascinating documentary series presented by Professor Brian Cox. Wonders of the Solar System
With incredible images and CGI footage this spellbinding series explains how the laws of physics carved natural wonders across the solar system. Witness giant ice fountains rising over 100km high; an ocean hidden beneath a frozen crust of ice; blood red storms twice the size of our planet, and immense volcanoes that could rip a planet apart. Wonders of the Universe
Who are we? Why are we here? Where do we come from? These are among the most enduring and profound questions we can ask and it is an essential part of human nature to want to find the answers. Our journey began 13.7 billion years ago with the beginning of our universe and in this series Prof. Brian Cox tells the epic story of our universe and shows how it’s story is also our story.

Two BBC science documentary series presented by physicist Brian Cox. Wonders of the Universe (2011) is an exploration of the universe and its effect on human life. Vast, complex and almost infinite, the universe has been the subject of human fascination and scientific exploration for thousands of years. Its properties can seem impossible to grasp, but this series uses the evidence found in the natural world around us to explain the fundamental principles that underpin the laws of nature such as light, gravity, matter and time. In Wonders of the Solar System (2010), Professor Cox demonstrates how the forces that shaped our world are also responsible for creating some of the most breathtaking sights in our solar system. Episodes are: Empire of the Sun, Order Out of Chaos, The Thin Blue Line, Dead Or Alive and Aliens.
