The Sun and the Moon

Two outstanding documentaries about two heavenly bodies that have fascinated mankind since we first looked up at the sky. The sun releases more energy every second than humans could use in a million years, and scientists are finding out more and more about our solar system's powerhouse every day. Our closest friend in the cosmos, our moon, has been a focal point for all ancient civilsations and the main goal in the early days of the 'space race'. Combining archival footage from NASA and ESA, with interviews and cutting edge graphics these documentaries shed some light on our nearest neighbour, and our nearest star.
