When the Venera probes first sent back their images from the surface of Venus, there was wide speculation that there was life on the planet due to irregularities in the images noted as "black flaps" and "scorpions".

Brian Cox is the David Attenborough of Space!
Epic! What a journey! We've learned so much in such a short period of time. I keep thinking back to my time in secondary school learning about the solar system and what we knew then compared to now is absolutely mind blowing! The production, music, editing and special effects really make you feel you're there. But Brian Cox is the star of the show, his delivery and narration is 10/10. If you like Planet Earth but are longing for something a little more extraterrestrial, look no further. The Planets will not disappoint.
