the unexplainable explained
28 November 2003 | by (the Hague, netherlands) – See all my reviews

Having read Mr. Hawking's books and loving them, i was very much looking forward to watching this documentary. I was not disappointed. It covers the science of cosmology from the ancient Greeks to modern day in a way which is both thorough (for a non-cosmologist) yet understandable to anyone. This is quite an accomplishment for many of the subjects are abstract, highly mathematical and hard (sometimes impossible) to visualize. The accompanying (computer-) animations and photographic material are of a very high standard and serve well in clarifying the narrator's text. I will watch this one over and over again, which is not something i usually do. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in physics, astronomy, cosmology or natural sciences in general.
