The Planets
Available on BBC iPlayer, iTunes
Using the latest science and the most detailed images ever produced, in combination with Academy Award-winning VFX company Lola Post, Professor Brian Cox explores the planets like never before. These stories of beauty and violence, creation and destruction, show our solar system to be not the serene and orderly system we might have thought, but an ongoing drama with characters and plot twists still unfurling around us. The histories of tragic Mars, a vibrant water planet turned barren desert, as well as the tyrannical Jupiter, which caused chaos in the solar system with its huge size, are brought to life with the latest research and effects to tell a story that has really only just begun.
