How the Universe Works

How the Universe Works is the greatest story ever told, the creation of everything us. The programme investigates how the Universe came into existence out of nothing, and how it grew from a miniscule point, smaller than an atomic particle, to the vast cosmos we see today.

Aired on 1/27/23 as new, but this time called "Secret Life of Comets". 

Why do they keep re-airing old shows with new names and pretending that they are new? To get you to watch them again I guess. Very annoying.

March 13, 2023: 

"Earth: Venus's Evil Twin" is the episode title used in the opening credits that I just watched on the Science Channel. The Science Channel also uses this title here in this link: Anyone can watch this and other series episodes here: So, I corrected the title from "Venus, Earth's Evil Twin" to "Earth: Venus's Evil Twin."
