Ancient Skies

About the Show

Discover how we used the skies to navigate and tell time, and how we gave religious significance to the things we saw there. We finish on the cusp of a revolution that gave birth to the science of astronomy. Using breathtaking CGI, beautiful landscape footage and some of the most important astronomical artefacts, this is the beginning of our journey through the history of our understanding of the cosmos.
