Human Universe (5 x 60′) – After exploring the universe, solar system and life on Earth, Professor Brian Cox brings his unique vision to the question of what it is to be human.
As humans, we have long sought to understand our place in the cosmos, looking for answers in the heavens and the Earth, discovering clues in the endless forms of living things and wondering at the precious nature of human life.
But perhaps most importantly of all, humans have driven themselves to do something that is as far as we know utterly unique in the universe. From our vantage point on this tiny planet around an everyday star, lost in the vastness of space – we humans ask questions.
Across the series, Brian will tackle the biggest questions that we can ask – from who are we and are we alone to why are we here and what is our destiny.
