    Cosmos (2014) - 2014

    Hosted by renowned astrophysicist Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, Cosmos continues from its 1980 predecessor, exploring how we discovered the laws of nature and found our coordinates in space and time. It brings to life never-before-told stories of the heroic quest for knowledge and transports viewers to new worlds and across the universe for a vision of the cosmos on the grandest scale. The most profound scientific concepts are presented with stunning clarity, uniting skepticism and wonder, weaving rigorous science with emotion and spirituality to form a single, united, transcendent experience.
    Beautiful stories about the greatest discoveries, revelations and thoughts about our universe in picture perfect HD. Its predecessor Cosmos is also highly recommended, however it is not so much in HD. Both series couldn't have been presented better by their hosts. - by Nic0_o

    Life - 2009

    "Life" is a spectacular new nature documentary series produced by the BBC. Ten chapters filmed in HD pursuing an ambitious goal: to be the definitive exploration of the diversity of the animal world. Throughout the series we will watch all kinds of amazing behaviours that defy our concept of other beings who inhabit this planet. For four years, the multi-Natural History Unit of the BBC has visited all the continents and types of environments in search of the most amazing stories about the continuing struggle for animal survival.
    Mesmerising and incredible stories of life in all its grandeur. All filmed with an eye for detail. I personally enjoyed it better than the original Planet Earth by the same presentator. - by Nic0_o

    Planet Earth - 2005

    Planet Earth is a 2006 television series produced by the BBC Natural History Unit. Five years in the making, it was the most expensive nature documentary series ever commissioned by the BBC and was described by its makers as "the definitive look at the diversity of our planet". Each 50 minute episode features a global overview of a different biome or habitat on Earth, followed by a ten-minute featurette which takes a behind-the-scenes look.
    Beautiful pictures of the most grand wonders of our planet: Earth. - by Nic0_o

    Planet Earth II - 2016

    David Attenborough presents a documentary series exploring how animals meet the challenges of surviving in the most iconic habitats on earth.
    A sequal to the original, also presented by the same wonderful man. Its especially interesting as it shows what we have lost in only ten years time. - by Nic0_o

    Through the Wormhole - 2010

    Hosted by Morgan Freeman, Through the Wormhole explores the deepest mysteries of existence - the questions that have puzzled mankind for eternity. What are we made of? What was there before the beginning? Are we really alone? Is there a creator? These questions have been pondered by the most exquisite minds of the human race. Now, science has evolved to the point where hard facts and evidence may be able to provide us with answers instead of philosophical theories. Through the Wormhole brings together the brightest minds and best ideas from the very edges of science - Astrophysics, Astrobiology, Quantum Mechanics, String Theory, and more - to reveal the extraordinary truth of our Universe.
    Awe-inspiring animations and in depth information on science topics presented from different perspectives. The first seasons I really enjoyed, not so much in the later seasons. - by Nic0_o
