iqs....I remember it well. I was fascinated at the theory of what would happen if mankind vanished from Earth. Every episode had some fantastic visual effects and, for once in my life, I actually looked forward to the next episode.
A brilliant and outstanding piece of TV which was truly thought-provoking.
I am more optimistic about our future as a species on this planet. No doubt that we will have many dangers ahead of us but man is adaptable and intelligent. If we can land a man on the moon in the last millenium then we will achieve even more in the distant future. It will be something of a race against time but I believe that we will survive at least much longer than the pessimists think. Mind you none of us will be around to prove it one way or the other.
I still haven't watched the new series yet,the next episode is on Sunday evening.Just hope I haven't missed to much.
I borrowed the first series on Thursday (2008).I was very impressed with their scientific predictions,and how they used current places/events to highlight what would/could happen. Very thought provoking.....
