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

Quidco 3% ... 54p Ordered one this morning...:)

Is this the one that's on tv now?

No, this was last years series. BBC are currently showing "Wonders Of The Universe".

Thanks, missed this one so might grab it

Probably better spending the extra quid or so and buying elsewhere judging by the feedback The Hut get on here Brian Cox will be on his 4th Blu Ray "The Wonders of Playing Keyboards in D:Ream" by the time you receive it.

Would be rude not to!

Made me chuckle

Each to their own. Play are also selling for £8.99 and i was going to post that one but because of the quidco, this is cheaper. I have had no problems with The Hut personally...

Made me chuckle




That was the intention

Given a choice between buying from The Hut and Play, I'd choose The Hut every time; the returns service at Play is dreadful.

Got mine yesterday quick delivery from The Hut.....no probs there
