5.0 out of 5 stars Your license fee money put to very good use
This is a rare example of a specialist topic given a mass appeal by the engaging voice accent and manner of Professor Brian Cox who manages to explain the Solar system as a natural phenomenon with numerous simple examples

It has some stunning computer generated graphics combined with real images and pictures

Traveling to many location over the planet...

3.0 out of 5 stars Wonders of the Solat System - not so wonderful
I was disappointed in that although there is plenty of Professor Brian Cox's views there was not that much revealed of the wonders of the Universe.by the material he covered.

1.0 out of 5 stars dull, shallow, flashy and loud, 20 Jun 2011
By 
Of all the recent Dumbed Down BBC 'Science' programs this is the most disappointing and insulting. At one point Brian Cox is relating an interesting (if rather basic) equation for determining the amount of energy that falls on the Earth from the Sun and halfway through relating the numbers involved Cox's voice fades away and the music (yet again) swells to drown him out.

Compair a similar moment in Carl Sagen's wonderful 'Cosmos' where he discusses simple mathematics and how to conceptualise vast numbers (he moves from powers through a googol to a googolplex without blinking) and you see just how Brian Cox thinks you're stupid, unable to understand Mathematics or Cosmology.

Rather like the book that span off this series this DVD is a collection of pretty pictures with little or no explanatory text.

Avoid and buy the BBC series 'The Planets,' and 'Cosmos' plus a few recent books of your own choice to understand the most recent developments in Cosmology.

Present for grandson. We both liked it.
With the exception of my views about the limited life of Kodak ink, the service and products are very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonders of the Solar System, 29 Dec 2011
Captivating. Brian Cox makes this interesting for everyone. If you weren't interested in the Solar System before, you certainly will be after seeing this.

I purchased this as a birthday present for someone else, sent it to California, and it has so far been lost in the post. I hope whoever stole it enjoyed it.
