This documentary mini-series combines astronomy and history as it presents man's continual quest to explore the outermost reaches of the universe. Satisfyingly realistic computer reconstructions allow viewers to go inside our sun, skirt the event horizon of a black hole, and travel to the deepest reaches of space, all while giving considered attention to the age-old question: are we alone in the universe, or is there life on other planets?

We once considered ourselves to be at the centre of the universe now we know that we are just a small spec in a giant cosmos.
