Biology and physics come together beautifully in a new factual series fronted by Brian Cox. With long crisp landscapes and a simple use of graphics, Cox explains the complex nature of life not just from a biological point of view but from a atomic one. It’s easy to forget that at the heart of it all, life is just a series of chemicals that have managed to move and replicate, and Cox is here to break it down for us. From how we make energy to what DNA is made of.
But this series is another in a long line of reasons why everyone should love him. What are they? Well, here they are.
