Makes you want to study the subject
Brilliant series and well explained...just wants you to go out there and discover.

Excellent Program
This is just the sort of program that the BBC should spend licence payers money on. The HD photography is stunning, the science cont well written, and Alice Roberts is an excellent role model for articulate intelligent British women.

what a waste of my license money! A paid trip around the world for Dr Whatshername just to tell me we came from Africa.. I already knew that! Rubbish.

song in the titles
does anyone know what the song in the titles is? Or is it just one made up for the show
Piefish   9:20pm Sun 14 Jun Report Abuse

Good show, but INCREDIBLY patronising. How I long for a science show that doesn't talk down to people like they were 10 year olds...

how is it rubbish?
i'm sorry - who are you to say its rubbish? It's actually pretty concrete science. BBC had to get special permission to get some of the things they show on this show. I think its more comprehensive that other shows on the same topic.

Utter Rubbish
Yes, she's gorgeous. No, I don't want to watch a program largely consisting of gratuitous shots of her looking pretty and coy masquerading as a 'science program' aimed at complete buffoons. Twee rubbish is the verdict

clifftop   8:34pm Sun 31 May Report Abuse

all right but very girlie and twee and all about her really, bit patronising. was hoping for more of a punch but i suppose the homogenisation of it all fits in with the curriculum. I suppose attenborough cant do everything though....
