It's so beautiful
22 December 2015 | by srinivasan-27291See all my reviews

Another excellent documentary from BBC in the wonders of... series. The animals shown in this documentary series are so beautiful and also the explanation part is mind blowing. I actually went through some of the important details 2-3 times, as i wasn't listening carefully to get the actual details. Brian Cox as usual comes with so some simple methods in explaining the concepts of life and the evolution of life to its present existence. Also Brian takes us into different parts of the world for explaining the evolution process and gives us details about life and its transformation with just simple basics. I also had experience of knowing about some new organisms and some new ideas with the evolution of life on our planet.
