One of the best...
17 November 2004 | by (Reading, England) – See all my reviews

...programs I have seen on TV in many years.

As far as I can tell, they really did get everything right. I have been interested in astronomy and the Solar system for some years and the scientific information in the program, such as surface conditions on Venus and Mars, the volcanic activity of Io, and magnetic fields of Jupiter, all seems very convincing. There's a lot of education in this show and it gives the layman the best possible feel as to what the solar system is really like.

The factual element combined with the excellent drama makes for a great show. The acting is first rate. So much so they don't really appear to be acting at all. It could easily be a fly-on-the-wall documentary. You get to care about the characters.

I can't rate this highly enough. Truly wonderful. Worth the price of a big TV even if this is the only show you ever watch!
