The latest example of just how much a terrific documentary series can benefit from the Blu-ray format, Wonders Of The Solar System is a fascinating six-part series that simply looks stunning in high definition.

Presented by Professor Brian Cox, the series takes time to investigate the solar system around us, and the many natural beauties contained within it. Across the episodes, Cox covers the likes of planets themselves, the rings of Saturn, the question of whether we’re alone in the universe, and the sun itself.

What lifts Wonders Of The Solar System above the many shows that have tackled the subject before, however, are two factors. Firstly, it’s Cox himself, an enthused and interesting host, who explains things well and really helps make accessible the material. Secondly, it’s the utterly stunning visuals. The BBC has mixed in CGI along with images sent directly from space to quite breathtaking effect.

And this, inevitably, is where the Blu-ray kicks in.Wonders Of The Solar System simply looks wonderful in high definition, with the visuals coming across terrifically well. On DVD, this all looked very impressive. Here, it’s simply brilliant, and the end result is a series that can sit alongside Planet Earth as an example of just what Blu-ray can do for material of this quality and ilk. --Jon Foster

Thanks, ordered! £4.44 on Amazon but have to spend over £10 for free delivery.

boooooring lol well matter of opinion

Link broken.

No doubt a reasonable price but can't stand Brian Cox with that constant childish grin . Doesn't come across as an Attenborough or Sagan but more of a gurning champion.

It's the.... slow..... voice and not..... flowing.... dialogue that gets me.

I'd have bought this if it wasn't for Cox. Cant bear him! It's a pity because most BBC documentaries are excellent.

If you like Brian Cox though, this is a good deal. Heat added.

Play used to be so awesome. Used to get everything from there, now it is like playing level 100 minesweeper. When you grab a rare bargain its good but otherwise its "oh, it doesn't look like that in the picture".

Bargain price.
If going for the Amazon option, you can get it even cheaper via flubit and avoid delivery cost.

You could try Flubit with the Amazon link and avoid having to spend £10. Wouldn't bother if you've already bought from Play though - can't be sure of the final price/discount. Very unpredictable.

Yeah the comments for our Brian have started off terrible! Things can only get better...

Great price

Well I think he's great, and his enthusiasm can only help get more people interested in an awe inspiring subject. Yes he has become a cliché, but he openly knows this and goes along with the Micky taking.

Hot btw.
