Richard Hammond journeys into the parallel universe that lies beyond the limits of the naked eye. Using state-of-the-art imaging technologies, Richard discovers that it's as much the things we cannot see as those we can that shape our lives.
From spectacular natural phenomena such as vast, superfast lightning clusters, to one of the wonders of the living world and our own technological achievements, such as the awe inspiring aerial work conducted on high-voltage power lines, Richard explores the hidden secrets of three distinct invisible realms that lie beyond the limits of human vision, helping us to unravel some of the mysteries of our world.

Hammond presents many of the pieces in a very similar manner to the way he presents on Top Gear.
On a couple of occasions he perceptively misjudges the separation of sentences creating apparent non-sequiturs but all is forgiven as generally his narration is soothing and ostensibly interested in what he is talking about.
Being able to purchase these programmes in high-definition is fantastic and I hope that more shows begin to follow suit. The images are regularly stunning although a few scenes appear blurry at the edges (this may be done for artistic effect).
The best thing about this show is that, even though I didn't find it even a bit dumbed-down or patronising, it still managed to hold the attention of my young children who watched it with me. That's no mean feat.
I would like to see Richard presenting more shows like this one.
The series makes a lot of claims, around being 'the first' or 'the best' at something, and the science is not all that sound. Having said that, if you do not care to much about science then you will find this a very interesting educational series.
The Blu-Ray itself is good(unlike some other BBC BDs), the picture quality is fantastic, particularly on close-up and high-speed photography shots. HD really makes a difference with this.
The audio quality does let it down though, being an okay stereo soundtrack. This series was produced with 5.1 surround so why don't the BBC use this soundtrack?
Good generally, though!
it enhances my appreciation of the world at large. I haven't got the lenses to examine the
oh-so-tiny creatures (or even simple attributes of nature) nor have I the ability to see things
that operate on such different timescales to my own world (whether faster or slower) yet this
DVD provides such an exquisite view of the world that is *really* out there that I seriously
recommend it to anyone who has any form of curiosity about the world that we all share.
