Great History Ruined by Mixing in Loud Sounds
22 September 2020 | by dean-05321See all my reviews

I would have rated this a 9/10, except the sound mixing ruined the show. There are way too many shows today where sound effects make hearing the words difficult, especially with the presenter's accent. The final show was not adequately reviewed, directors should be fired, and the show should be re-released with sound effects subdued.

The predominant view today is that the Cosmic Background Radiation is from the Big Bang, but why isn't it directional - it does not make sense it would come from all directions and be red-shifted. Also, first light from the Big Bang would expand faster than matter and be lost in space, not visible at any wavelength from our galaxy.
