Forces of Nature with Brian Cox
A bold and breathtaking series taking viewers on a tour of our planet to explain what lies beneath Earth’s startling beauty and ultimately what makes our world work. Using accessible science and cutting-edge filming techniques, the program explores the simplest possible questions about the planet we live on – such as why is water blue? why do bees make hexagonal honeycombs? – in order to reveal deeper truths about the cosmos and the forces of nature that govern everything in it. Travelling to stunning locations around the globe and featuring the creatures and environments shaped by these natural forces, it also looks at how humans fit into the story through episodes themed around Colour, Motion, Shape and Elements.
