I really like that guy as a presenter of science. There's something about the unassuming, every day way in which he describes things which really makes it very watchable.
some that the young guy explained the vastness of space
Earth is 93m miles from the sun = 1 astronomical unit = 1cm
Neptune = 30 AUís = 30cm
Pluto = 50 AUís = 50cm
Oort Cloud = 50000 = 0.5Km
Which is the full extent of our suns empire. The nearest neighbour which is Proxima Centauri which takes the suns light 4yrs to reach and is a red dwarf star among 200 billion other that make up the milky way
absolutely uncomprehensible how big the universe actually is. i have no more words how in awe i am trying to understand it all

Actually - now you mention it we do have Sky+ ( we recently changed from BT Vision) but I watch so little tv I can't switch our tv on - there's too many remote controls and as I watch it so little I have never bothered to learn .
I'll get one of the boys to do it for me .
I fell asleep.
Is it on iplayer?
