Over 10 hours in 2 incredible series on one playable DVD.
One IMDB reviewer writes:
This 8 "hour" series is a wonderful historical production about the history of space travel including both Russian and American perspectives. It focuses each episode on a topic like the sun, atmosphere, giants, moon etc... The film footage on both country's programs reaches from the Sun to Neptune and the moons in between. The real video and still photography is accompanied by realistic computer generated enhancements. This series is well worth the time of any astronomy buff and even those who just want to learn a lot more about our Solar System.
Space (released as HyperSpace on DVD)

This whole new series is brilliant! There really is no other way to describe this series. Sam Neill really does host this series well and the graphics are really good, for instance when the diagrams showing how stars super nova at the end of their lives you will be really impressed by the amount of detail in the computer animation. I really recommend this show for anyone who is interested in space or who has ever wondered the answer to the question 'where do we really come from?' The whole series will not be a let down to anyone who watches it!
