Beeb really should give Horizon to the OU to produce. Needs science people, not meeja studies wonks.

Mark Kermode on BBC4 might be a better watch.

Got bored after 10 minutes of that, made a cup of tea now going to watch some Y'Tube videos

The Jupiter programme improved but still too much daft associations.  The whole scientific content could have been condensed into around 10-15 minutes, possibly less.  The problem I find with this type of programme is that you can't tell the difference between real images taken by spacecraft or probe and CGI.  They rarely tell you what's real and what isn't.

I'm sorry I wasted people's time by flagging this up :sad:.

At least Kermode was worth watching.

I've got used to not expecting much from BBC programmes unless they're on BBC4 which generally seem to be of a higher calibre.

I really enjoyed it, the insight into the Juno exploration leading to the recent discoveries quite fascinating.

I didn't get to watch it when broadcast, just sat down with iPlayer 5 mins ago..... turned off when the lady told me how hard it was to get a sense of how big it is. The trailer before it started had already annoyed me tbh, oooh says I, new nature program, interesting footage - title 'Animals behaving badly'. Why oh why? 

Agree with Dave about the OU.

Prof. Cox has a new show that looks promising though, watching ep. 1 as we speak.

*edit* Not a new show at all, it's a repeat, but I missed it first time round so that's ok. So far so good.

Trouble is , millions of viewers now believe Jupiter is big, really big, in fact as big as a 30 tonne truck! 😀

I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to Jupiter 🚀
