Best of science programs
They present fact and amazing smart science analysis and detective work to find out and conclude the interesting outcome. BBC should show more of it.

Carl Sagan
This is the science equivalent of come dancing does for dancing and x factor does for music etc. He is one of those guys you want to finish his sentence for him before you explode with frustration. A Carl Sagan he is not nor does his 'show' come close to his emulation of the original. I wish he would just get out of camera shot before I throw up with his inane grin'love me' grin.

Best TV of 2011
The successor to 'Wonders of the Solar System' once again made physics sound sexy. Not to mention the fact that it was presented by the veritable sex symbol for science nerds, Professor Brian Cox.

Great Show
This show is fantastic. The airwaves are saturated with utter rubbish like Dancing on Ice and X Factor that only demand the I.Q. of a sprout to watch. It's fantastic to see such an interesting and important topic given a prime time slot like this. I hope the BBC continues to air this kind of show.

I do like the show but he does look like the child catcher and sound like a wimp who smells his own farts.

A1 brilliant
We're all made from effing star dust mate. Sup up and shut it. Brain Cox is better than a cheap bag of barms from Greggs.

Great Show
but "Things can only get better" as the song goes but if we are to believe entropy (universe decaying) then "Things can only get worse"

Inter Stellar Space
So when galaxies collide some stars can be ejected into inter stellar space! We were told this not once but twice. Stars are already in inter stellar space (space between the stars) I think he meant Inter Galactic Space. Pity we can’t have a bit more meat in these programs.

Messengers Professor Brian Cox reveals how the unique properties of light provide an insight into the origins and evolution of both mankind and the universe. He charts the importance of light in the development of the world's ancient civilisations, and explains how the speed of light allows the measurement of both distance and time - before pinpointing one of the most important moments in the evolution of life on Earth.
