ABOUT THE SHOW

Visionary perspective on human life

This is the story of humanity, told through the greatest questions we’ve ever asked. Venturing into incredible places across the globe and drawing on the latest scientific theories, Professor Brian Cox explores everything from the nature of consciousness and language development to the human need to search deeper into the unknown and our compulsion to discover alien life in the universe.

In this definitive exploration of our past, present and future, the series concludes with a visionary image of what could lie ahead.
