Less face, more footage
He's like Barbie, the human form of the Chesire cat. Why do we need to look at him all the time! Please stop documentaries like this BBC! More footage, less face!

Great content. Irritating presenter
Two questions 1. Tell us what this series cost to produce and how was it ever justified. 2. Given the answer to 1 why did they choose this irritating constantly smiling patronising nerd to fly from one exotic location to the next in order to illustrate a point that could have been made for a fraction of the cost? Perhaps he is a Snotite!

wet's your appetite
TV science documentaries aren't meant to turn people into erudite scientists, they're just there to whet your appetite. If you want to find out more why not go and buy a book on astronomy or science!! Chumps!!

A good holiday programme
Did Mr Cox really need to go to Costa Rica , Patagonia , or any of these other beautiful places just to talk about "the arrow of time" ??. Could he not do it in front of a whiteboard - and save us licence payers a lot of money ? Please rename this show "Brian's holiday show"

bad choice
usually i enjoy this type of program by the bbc but this weirdo puts me right off with his child catcher face and pathetic voice.

Best TV of 2010
Physicist Brian Cox did the seemingly unthinkable when he made the Solar System sexy, with a series that focused on the 'wonder' of our universe and how it operates. This programme was one of our highest-rating shows of the year, as voted for by TVGuide.co.uk users.

Dead or Alive Brian Cox compares the geography of Earth and Mars to understand why life is abundant on this planet, while its neighbour is a geologically dead desert world of ice and dust. Investigating the importance of size, he contrasts the Grand Canyon and Hawaii's Mauna Kea mountain with the 17km-high Olympus Mons peak on the Martian surface and studies why Venus - often called Earth's twin planet - was made barren by huge volcanic eruptions
