Movie review: Orbit: Earth's Extraordinary Journey

Following the Earth's one-year journey around the sun, hosts Kate Humble and Dr. Helen Czerski take a look at the impact the journey has on our planet's weather.

Hosts: Kate Humble, Dr. Helen Czerski

Orbit: Earth's Extraordinary Journey takes a look at how the Earth's annual journey around the sun impacts weather on our planet. Traveling the world, Kate and Helen examine significant events that take place throughout the year and what exactly influences those events. Using easy to understand language and details this series does an incredible job of explaining natural events. Explanation of the Earth's orbit and changing orientation was particularly enjoyable.

Acting was enjoyable from both Humble and Czerski. Both have an obvious enthusiasm and interest in nature, and science in general.

Camera work, sets, and backgrounds focus primarily on natural locations and scenery was used well and added nicely to the depth of the series. CGI and animation was nicely done and simply explained some challenging concepts. Dialogue was solid with nice depth and detail. Sound is enjoyable, as is the soundtrack.

Overall Orbit: Earth's Extraordinary Journey is a very nicely done BBC documentary that does a great job of explaining our solar system and how our journey around the sun impacts our planet's weather. Anyone with an interest in learning more about our weather patterns or solar journey should enjoy this one.

Nothing here to limit audience age.
