This co-production of the BBC and the Science Channel is hosted by physicist Brian Cox ("Wonders of the Universe"), who is fascinated by the wonders of our planet and the laws of nature that created them. In this five-part series he travels the globe to examine some of the most compelling phenomena, demonstrating the power of the sun as he watches a total solar eclipse in India and the Aurora Borealis in Norway. In addition to the breathtaking footage, viewers can learn about the power of the forces of nature and their impact on the planet in this Peabody Award-winning documentary series.
"Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane, in a departure from the type of material he is best known for, pays homage to Carl Sagan's award-winning and iconic "Cosmos" with this docuseries. Through stories of humankind's quest for knowledge, viewers travel across the universe. Scientific concepts are presented clearly, with both skepticism and wonder, to impart their full impact. Renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson hosts, and Sagan's original creative collaborator, Ann Druyan, serves as an executive producer.
Combining feature film-quality scripted elements and visual effects with documentary-style interviews, "Mars" illuminates the peaks and valleys of a modern-day space race while dramatizing humanity's first harrowing attempt to colonize the distant planet. The scripted portion is told from the point of view of a maiden Mars mission in 2033. Led by commander Ben Sawyer, the crew of the Daedalus spacecraft must overcome monumental obstacles if it is to successfully establish the first sustainable colony on Mars. Oscar and Emmy winners Ron Howard and Brian Glazer, via their production house Imagine Entertainment, are among the series' executive producers, and visionary Mexican filmmaker Everardo Gout ("Days of Grace") directs.
What is life? And how did it begin? Professor Brian Cox explores the globe to reveal how a few fundamental laws of science gave birth to the most complex, and unique, feature of the universe. In the five-part series, Cox -- a professor of physics at the University of Manchester in England -- travels from the Philippines to the U.S., Madagascar and Mexico to explore life through physics, and concludes that, far from demanding a mystical explanation, the emergence of life might be an inevitable consequence of the physical laws that govern the universe.
The planet is teeming with myriad life forms, both plant and animal, all interlocked in a struggle for survival. As time goes on, some living things are forced to adapt and change to survive. This series chronicles some of the most unusual, if not downright bizarre, behaviors that living organisms have devised to keep their species alive. The 11-episode series was four years in the making, taking camera crews to every continent and habitat.
