One of the worst episodes of Horizon i've seen in along time. Still the
same 30 year old Voyager images pulled out of the image library. The
images from Cassini are more spectacular than any computer animation why
not use them?

I may be wrong but as that program was a repeat perhaps all the
data/images hadn't been released in time for the program makers to use
them?

I'm sure I watched that episode quite a while ago.

You can be forgiven for having Deja vu moments, as although this episode
has not been broadcast before, it was made by recycling material from
3 earlier Horizons episodes, and a sprinking of new material.

It was a useful compendium but I lost count of how many time LIFE was mentioned. Seems the media can't relate to anything in outer space without such constant reference so as to keep folk moderately interested. What's wrong with just presenting physics - that's much more interesting than pond-life ;-))))

At least no explosions, but plenty of Saturn ring particles banging into
each other, with sound effects !

He he :-) I thought it was not too bad, a lot of repeated stuff yes, but
quite a good overall picture of the mission. I wouldn't want one of
those Titan (?) rockets lifting off from my back garden though....that
was one big firework..

If there were any explosions, they didn't wake me up! ;o) Seriously, I
really did fall asleep!

Cheers,

I videod it for the kids at school but wrote it off as too dull for them
hald way through. A real dissapointment.

The way they overcame the antenae problem was pure genius however.

I didn't fall asleep, I just forgot I was watching it, after about half-way
I only looked up from the laptop at the end.

TV is rubbish as a means of gaining knowledge these days, it's not much cop
for entertainment either for that matter. Why do we pay the BBC extortion
fee?
