Professor Brian Cox and Dara O Briain host three nights of stargazing and discussion, live from Jodrell Bank. Featuring guest experts and link-ups to observatories around the world.
|S01E01||Episode 1||03/01/2011||Join Professor Brian Cox and Dara O Briain to wonder at the night sky, with extraordinary images beamed in from telescopes across the globe. Learn how to observe and take pictures over three busy days in the celestial calendar, with a meteor shower, a partial eclipse of the sun and the biggest planet in our solar system, Jupiter, burning bright. Wannabe stargazer Jonathan Ross gets a crash course in planet spotting in his own back garden; while in Hawaii, Liz Bonnin reports from the edge of a volcano to help explain how the Earth was formed.|
|S01E02||Episode 2||04/01/2011||In the second of three live programmes, Professor Brian Cox and Dara O Briain look at images of the partial eclipse of the sun and investigate how stars are born. Liz Bonnin shows us the sun in a different light - live from Hawaii; while novice star spotter Jonathan Ross discovers the key to observing constellations. Plus astronomer Mark Thompson demonstrates how to find our nearest galaxy, Andromeda.|
|S01E03||Episode 3||05/01/2011||Jonathan Ross joins Professor Brian Cox and Dara O Briain at Jodrell Bank, home of one of Britain's biggest telescopes, for an hour of live stargazing. The search for extraterrestrial life is the subject of Liz Bonnin's report atop one of the world's highest observatories in Hawaii, Brian chats to the crew of the International Space Station as they orbit the earth at 17,500 miles an hour, and Dara experiences what it is like to be in space.|
|S02E01||Episode 1||16/01/2012||Dara O Briain and Professor Brian Cox return to celebrate the wonder of our amazing night sky. Live from Jodrell Bank observatory, the team kick off with a look at the mysteries of the moon and meet Captain Eugene Cernan, the last man ever to walk on its surface. Liz Bonnin reports direct from South Africa on the differences between the constellations of the northern and southern hemispheres whilst Mark Thompson offers help on buying all the kit you need to get started in astronomy.|
|S02E02||Episode 2||17/01/2012||Dara and Brian's journey through the night sky continues with a look at black holes, the most mysterious and destructive objects in the known universe. Liz Bonnin finds out how our galaxy, the Milky Way, was formed and Mark Thompson investigates the problems that are caused by light pollution.|
|S02E03||Episode 3||18/01/2012||On the final night of their astronomical adventure, Prof Brian Cox and Dara O Briain discuss aliens, extra terrestrial life and the hunt for new worlds far outside our solar system. They also find out if they've been successful in their quest to find their own Stargazing planet. Meanwhile, Mark Thompson attempts to tackle light pollution by getting the entire population of a small town to switch off all of their lights.|
|S03E01||Episode 1||08/01/2013||Dara O Briain and Professor Brian Cox celebrate our amazing night sky. They kick things off with the search for evidence of life on Mars and ask viewers for help to explore an uncharted area of the red planet's surface. Liz Bonnin reports live from NASA mission control to find out the latest findings of the Curiosity Rover, whilst Mark Thompson offers tips on how to observe the moons of Jupiter.|
|S03E02||Episode 2||09/01/2013||Dara and Brian's journey through the night sky continues with a look into the distant past, explaining how it is possible to chart the history of the universe by looking million of light years out into the depths of space. Meanwhile, Mark Thompson reveals what can be learned from the colours of the stars. At NASA, Liz Bonnin meets the team building the largest space telescope in the world, an instrument that's 100 times more powerful than the Hubble.|
|S03E03||Episode 3||10/01/2013||On the final night of their astronomical adventure, Brian and Dara discuss meteors, comets and asteroids and reveal how studying them reveals information about the origins of life on Earth. Meanwhile, Liz Bonnin meets the NASA team tasked with tracking any space objects on a collision course with Earth. The results of the experiment carried out by the Stargazing viewers - to explore an uncharted area on the surface of Mars - are also revealed.|
|S04E01||Episode 1||07/01/2014||In the most ambitious series to date, Brian Cox and Dara O Briain are back at Jodrell Bank Observatory, in the first of three live shows with the latest news and the best views of the night sky. This time the team have taken on an astonishing challenge - to capture one of the top highlights of the solar system - the mysterious and elusive northern lights. But will the lights reveal themselves? Liz Bonnin reports live from within the Arctic Circle, joining aurora researchers in northern Norway, who will help her unravel the secrets of this eerie spectacle. Brian and Dara have the very latest weather reports from around the solar system. They welcome celebrated NASA scientist Dr Carolyn Porco, who shares some of the most jaw-dropping pictures of the solar system ever beamed back to Earth: Saturn's gigantic storms and baffling hexagonal clouds taken by the Cassini probe. Dara witnesses the launch of a new NASA mission to Mars, while resident stargazer Mark Thompson chases clear skies to show the best of what there is to see above the UK. And if the January weather is not for you, you can help the team search for undiscovered galaxies from the comfort of your own living room.|
|S04E02||Episode 2||08/01/2014||Brian Cox and Dara O Briain host the second night of their three-day stargazing extravaganza from Jodrell Bank Observatory, where they are joined by two generations of astronauts. Walt Cunningham was one of the first ever crew to fly an Apollo spacecraft into orbit, while Commander Chris Hadfield recently returned from months aboard the International Space Station. Liz Bonnin attempts a world-first, reporting live from a plane 28,000 feet above the Arctic Circle, as she steps up her mission to capture the Northern Lights. Dara finds out how it feels to be truly weightless on the infamous 'vomit comet' aeroplane. Brian describes how scientists are tackling the problem of interstellar travel, and the team reveal never-before-seen images from around the solar system. Meanwhile, resident astronomer Mark Thompson navigates using the stars, and takes an unprecedented look at the 400-year-old giant storm on Jupiter, as it moves into view live during the programme.|
|S04E03||Episode 3||09/01/2014||Brian Cox and Dara O Briain raise the stakes in the final night of their astronomy extravaganza, and reveal the results of their viewers' challenge to find undiscovered galaxies at the edge of space. Reporting live from above the clouds in Norway, Liz Bonnin has one last chance to capture the spectacular Northern Lights, using super-sensitive cameras. Brian reveals why no-one really knows what our own galaxy, the Milky Way, really looks like, and how the remarkable Gaia space probe is set to change all that by mapping a billion of our neighbouring stars. With his sights set on a weekend break to a distant planet, Dara prepares to suffer as he straps himself into a human centrifuge to find out whether humans can accelerate to light speed. Meanwhile, resident astronomer Mark Thompson joins thousands of amateur astronomers at one of the spectacular stargazing parties taking place across the country, and looks ahead at the treats the night sky has in store over the year.|
