Part one was tonight on BBC2 and BBCHD.

It was, without question, the best hour of scientific programming I have ever seen.

SOHO, TRACE and STEREO imagery, great though it is - can't fly you through the chronosphere. The CGI - especially for that - was superb.

On the subject of UK space documentaries, one of the best I've ever seen is a 1995 Equinox episode called 'On Jupiter'

I could post a link to this on youtube but I'm not going to unless I get mod approval.
