Re: More travelogue than science

"I see no great benefit to shipping Cox to dozens of exotic locations to deliver a few sentences which could be done in voiceover from a nice warm UK studio."

My memories of one of Cox's earlier efforts:

* To explain eclipses, fly to India.

* To explain the rainfall cycle, fly to the Amazon.

I assume that overseas sales of the "product" are improved by such jetsetting.

The topics he covers are important. The programs are, in some ways, beautifully made (assuming they've turned down the background muzak). Regardless, I don't watch him any more. But I would watch a proper Horizon, if they existed.
