Synopsis:
Prepare to immerse yourself in an alien world as if you were standing there yourself. Giant ice fountains rising over 100km high; an ocean hidden beneath a frozen crust of ice; storms twice the size of Earth coloured blood red by a vortex of dust and gases; immense volcanoes that could rip a planet apart - this series reveals the true and awesome beauty of our solar system. Using the very latest breathtaking images sent directly from space, groundbreaking CGI transforms the static into the dramatic.
Travelling from the Sun to the far-out reaches of Neptune, the series has at its heart the latest scientific knowledge beamed back from the fleet of probes, rovers and - telescopes currently in space, and offers a vivid and unprecedented tour of the world beyond our planet.

Glitteringly interesting - Wonders of the Solar System review by JD

Spoiler Alert
21/02/2013

If you are more likely to read the home news in a newspaper than foreign news this series will be more interesting than the similar one on the Universe. Somehow it is closer to home to hear how robots on Mars have shown their sunrise than the red dwarfs at the edge of the universe. The style of presentation was not to my taste. Prof. Cox is interesting and clearly a brainy geezer but the way the swirling computer graphics are repeated endlessly is boring and the layout of each chapter unimaginative. How we apparently know so much is unexplained, possibly because it is monstrously difficult.
