The Cosmos (for a bargin price)

Cosmos was the great forerunner of series like the Wonders of the Solar System/Universe.  Carl Sagan opened the eyes of a huge number of people to cosmology and astronomy, including Brian Cox – hear him talk about his hero via BBC iPlayer, the program starts about 1 minute 25 in to the recording. The series had an eclectic soundtrack too, from Vangelis to Vivaldi to Japanese folk. I’ve been looking for a decent copy of the series on DVD for a while; now it’s available on Amazon for a bargin price: Cosmos [DVD] [1980]
