To boldly go!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Planets [DVD] (DVD)And boldly did they go!
'The Planets' is a delightful journey through our Solar System which leaves the viewer quite breathless at the mind-boggling scale of the forces which brought it into being. Not only does this mini-series inform about our neighbours in the system, it entertains at the same time. It stimulates the senses and tweaks at the imagination.
It differs from many other of the BBC presentations in that it provides no presenter to divert attention. The narration from Samuel West is excellent and the stunning soundtrack adds to the visual treat.
The introduction of many of the great personalities who furthered our knowledge is a major bonus and the original film coverage of many of the relevant episodes historically stunning.
Anyone who is in the slightest interested in seeking an explanation as to how the Solar System came about should acquire the mini-series with its clear and lucid descriptions.
I'm so glad I decided to 'go' with them!
