What a delightful !
30 May 2013 | by (Venezuela) – See all my reviews

Wonders of life is a five episodes documentary in which professor Brian Cox explains how and why life exists on our planet, he does that by asking one simple question, what is life and what is energy. Besides the relationship and how life makes use of the energy for living, professor Brian Cox talks about the implication of having an expanding universe, how the force of gravity rules the size of living things and the huge variety of species. Every episode is very well made, full with really cool graphics and soundtrack, the camera work is very solid and the narrative is just perfect in such way that keeps you interested at every moment. I would have to say that i enjoyed watching this so much that i didn't want it to ever end, give it a try and you won't be disappointed.
