5.0 out of 5 stars An extraordinary documentary, 8 Oct 2004
This review is from: Cosmos [DVD] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Carl Sagan who was the man responsible behind the Voyager Missions ( that brought us back all these great pictures of our solar system ) and the SETI programme , presents a documentary that looks at the universe , evolution and our great philoshophical questions with humility and a simply beatiful scientific yet humane approach. Filmed in the 80s in the peak of the cold war it conveys a wonderfull message ; life in the form as we know it here on earth is an extreme rarity and its down to us to make the most out of it and not destry each other. The effects are a bit outdated and so are some scientific answers however it is a documantary that not easily forgotten and so is the music by Vangelis ( So long ago,so clear fromt the album Heaven and Earth) that suits the theme and the ethos of these documentaries perfectly. Worth having and to show your children.
