Two ground-breaking BBC documentaries together for the first time on DVD. From the team that brought us Walking With Dinosaurs, these documentaries are a revealing look at mankind's fascination with the sun, our moon – and many others. We are in a golden age of solar science. Scientists are making remarkable discoveries about the inferno at the Sun's core and the magnetic chaos of its surface.
The Sun releases more energy every second than humans will use in the next million years. It's responsible for us being here in the first place. And, it just may be our only hope for the future. Conversely, our most ancient ancestors were fascinated by the Moon and used its changing phases as a way of telling the time before calendars or the written word. Almost every ancient society with a system of gods and goddesses included the moon as its pantheon. Together for the first time on DVD, ‘The Sun’ and ‘The Moon’ each blend archival footage and photography from the Apollo missions, NASA and the European space agency with interviews from a variety of people on solar and lunar activity.
