EP1/2 Everything and Nothing


A two-part documentary which deals with two of the deepest questions there are – what is everything, and what is nothing?

In two epic, surreal and mind-expanding films, Professor Jim Al-Khalili searches for an answer to these questions as he explores the true size and shape of the universe and delves into the amazing science behind apparent nothingness.

The first part, Everything, sees Professor Al-Khalili set out to discover what the universe might actually look like. The journey takes him from the distant past to the boundaries of the known universe. Along the way he charts the remarkable stories of the men and women who discovered the truth about the cosmos and investigates how our understanding of space has been shaped by both mathematics and astronomy.

  1. great doc. bbc delivers on this one!! 

  2. Pretty good documentary. It gets a bit dry in the middle but it picks up again in the end and ends with some very interesting statements.

  3. The Professor’s presentation clearly outshines (super nova like) others who’ve made attempts to explain these astronomical concepts so many can get at least a slippery grasp.
