The best PBS series ever
22 August 2003 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews



This has been a long-standing PBS series that is the gold standard for documentary series.

I remember watching as a child with fascination one episode about the Voyager spacecraft, and another about whales.

Long may she live!
