Giants: Boldly Go

The Planets Revisited Episode 3 of 8

Scientists recall the challenges of the Voyager mission, which sent twin probes to explore the vast gas planets at the far reaches of the Solar System - Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Using images from the spacecraft, which embarked on their long journey in 1977, and visual effects, the programme traces the probes' encounters and reveals strange and complex worlds with a spectacular array of rings and moons.
