Bryan Posted January 3, 2021 Share Posted January 3, 2021 I've been chewing my way through The Planets , a BBC/Open University series narrated by Brian Cox. The good thing is that it is interesting and I'm learning quite bit while Prof Cox's explanations are clear and avoid overmuch technicality But the bad thing is that there is so much empty time, screenfuls of him wandering across desolate regions, photos of clouds etc. The result is that whole thing takes far too long, extreme boredom sets in, and I can't stand to watch more than 30 minutes at a time. I wish the producers of these programmes could move things on at a faster pace - maybe they are being paid by the minute ? If the spoken sound track could extracted and used as a radio programme that would condense the delivery by at least 50% and would be far more entertaining. Rant over. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
