The Phrase: "A must see" is not even close to describe
24 July 2012 | by lembisyouSee all my reviews

I must have seen probably more or less a hundreds of documentaries, about nature , environment, and some enough for Space, Universe, Cosmos.

In this Documentary, simply what you watch , what you can get its indescribable. And it is represented for this really wonderful person Professor Brian Cox. You simply can see with every word and every expression of his face, how much he loves and he is fascinated with everything he describes. One more amazing thing is that he tries and succeeds to describe so many things with simple stuff traveling all around earth, to show a simulation and to bring as close it could be, to things billions miles away. So even if you don't have any background in astronomy e.t.c you can surely watch and learn so so , but so many things. Although i would suggest some little knowledge from before so you can understand even better.

Well i think , as many as i would write would never be enough.

This is really the best of the many many documentaries i have seen so far ( Although you can't say such thing ). Hope he will continue the same... thank you sir Brian Cox.
