With breathtaking CGI, beautiful landscape footage and some of the world’s most important astronomical artifacts, Ancient Skies looks at the universe through the eyes of our ancestors, charting our changing view of the cosmos throughout history.

Take a journey through past visions of the heavens from all over the world, from the dawn of civilization to the recent past. From hunter-gatherers to Edwin Hubble, see the myriad of ways that we have observed and chronicled the movements of the heavens.

With a cast of expert historians and astronomers, the science behind the phenomena that our ancestors sought to explain through mythology is explored.

Throughout the series, cutting-edge animation is used to demonstrate our ever-evolving understanding of how the universe works and our place in an ever-expanding cosmos.

This really caught my attention when I saw it broadcast on PBS, so I wanted it in my collection. I received it on time and will have it now to relax and review.

Ive always enjoyed the study of history and over the past eight years Ive also come to enjoy astronomy. Here you have a very interesting combination of the two.

Waiting for the Blu Ray
Review by Joe on 04/05/21 review stating Waiting for the Blu Ray
I have been watching this on television. The full HD of the broadcast was fantastic. I know will would not be as satisfied with just the basic DVD. I will purchase the Blu Ray when its available. For the program itself, I will give 5 stars.
