Reviews

See as never before the inner workings of our universe.

Take a front-row seat to view the inner workings of our universe. See how stars are engineered, how deadly black holes come to be and get the scoop on the Big Bang Theory. Witness the mechanisms of our universe as you ve never them before and explore black holes, supernovae, neutron stars, dark energy and all the titanic forces that make us who we are.

The series explores the engineering of the universe, explaining how the cosmos is put together and how it actually works. Learn how from the beginning of time, stars, galaxies, planets, solar systems and more have been working individually and together to produce all that is and all that we see.

With a dynamic cast of experts and a new generation of CGI, How The Universe Works looks under the celestial hood to reveal the inner workings of outer space: the story of how it's made and how it runs.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is a 3 DVD series of 8 programmes, each of which are about 44 minutes long (although when shown on TV they take up an hour with all the adverts!)
The eight programmes are;
1. Extreme Stars
2. Black Holes
3. Big Bang
4. Galaxies
5. Solar Systems
6. Planets
7. Moons
8. Supernovas
Each programme gives a good overview of the subject and is quite current. The graphics are excellent, and each is pretty easy to follow. Experts give little commentaries throughout, including theoretic physicist Michio Kaku, who is always really engaging.
Criticisms, if any, are: some of the explanations are quite basic, especially in the viewer has some prior knowledge, so the content isn't particularly challenging. There is a bit of repetition between programmes eg. Extreme stars and Supernovas have overlapping content.
Alround; excellent educational entertainment and value for money.

This series could have been great if it wasn't for the"Principal Skinner" narration and thefact that it looks like it was changed after it was produced. Some of the chapters have been retitled from "Galaxies" to"Alien Galaxies","Stars" to"Extreme Stars", "Planets" to "Extreme Planets","Solar Systems to "Alien Solar Systems", etc. A shame really.

How The Universe Works describes cosmology in some considerable detail using the latest computer generated graphics. The images are superb and the commentary excellent. There are almost six hours of awe-inspiring facts about our Universe presented in a way that is entertaining, enthralling and educational.

I watched some of the programmes that were broadcast on one of the Freeview TV channels, and was so impressed with them that I bought a DVD of them. The programmes are of excellent quality, very informative, and with brilliant computer graphics. If you have any interest in the solar system in particular, and the cosmos in general, then this DVD is for you. Highly recommended.

We stumbled across this by accident and have been hooked ever since. The graphics are great the contributors are knowledgeable and there are no amateur 'celebs' to distract. I will never look at the night sky in the same way ever again.
