An original soundtrack was composed for the series by television and film composer Sheridan Tongue, combining symphonic orchestral recordings with electronic and sampled elements. The score was recorded and mixed in 5.1 surround sound for HD broadcast and DVD and Blu-ray release. It is narrated by the British actor Benedict Cumberbatch ( Hawkins in the BBC series , Atonement and Starter for 10 ) and Professor Hawking .Of note is his superb sense of humor that add a light touch to the series ( aka Brian Cox and his Rock and roll image ) .
Episode 1 - Aliens: In "Are We Alone?"
This is the weakest episode of the series ,by trying to produce clever graphics to illustrate possible life forms in the universe the series looks more appealing to the American market with strong visual effects . Hawking considers one of the most important mysteries facing humankind - the possibility of alien, intelligent life. He leads us on a journey from the moons of Jupiter to a galaxy maybe not so far, far away. We will meet possible aliens and wonder at their form, we will delve into the very principles of what it is to call something alive, and we will calculate the likelihood of 'contact' being made.
Episode 2 - Time Travel: "Is Time Travel Possible?"
A more enjoyable episode with a great explanation of all we know about time travel .Read more ›
Well written by Stephen Hawking and very well narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch, and very good graphics to go with it.
There's a two 43-minute episodes and one 86 minute episode (174 minutes total time) on alien life, time-travel, space-time and universe.
I've also seen a similar BBC series called "Wonders of the Universe" with Brian Cox, and it wasn't anywhere near as good. So I would definitely recommend Stephen Hawking's Universe instead.
Also, you really get a feel for Stephen's personality as every word said in this stunning documentary is his own. He comes across as very down to earth ( I know, ironic isn't it? ) yet quite open minded to extreme ideas and my favourite trait he has is his humour.
Overall, I really felt this documentary reached out to me and answered lots of those questions I'd been asking myself whenever looking up at the stars. It's a great educational buy.
