The Planets
Professor Brian Cox tells the dramatic stories of the eight majestic planets of our solar system. The latest science allows us to piece together clues of magnificent lost waterfalls on Mars, the mass planetary migrations as they jostled for position early in their history, and even the distant fate of Saturn as one of its moons awakens to form a beautiful water world.
