Cool More sci-doccies on Explora CU+ (Shows section)

There's a new one from NatGeo hidden away among the reality TV stuff -
Mission: Saturn
Expires 13 Oct.

Unfortunately no sign of any live repeat but at least it's available in HD via CU+.

Since added - NatGeo is now doing a series called Year Million.

(It's live on Sundays @ 20:05 , with no repeats so please could Carte Blanche watch their scheduling for the next few weeks... )

Hi All

Currently, there are no scheduled repeats for Mission: Saturn.

You can catch Year Million or even set a recording on Sundays at 20:05 on Nat Geo, channel 181.

Reason for it and live TV mentions as well... they are harder to regularly search for or spot and not everyone even has an Explora or then has CU+, or wants to always use it or other online options, and some may want longer lasting recordings.

@Grace, it would be great if you people can maybe mention these doccies earlier somehow, I missed Sunday past's episode. They are sort of in a category of their own.
If possible... thanks.

Opinion:
I've since put this series on the back shelf rather for a possibly rainy day - I'm all for useful science and its interesting imaginings, but this breed of scientist has no concept or even tolerance for the possibility of soul and therefore, in episode 1 anyway, a far too bleak and IMHO bizarre concept of the far future.
But each to their own of course...

Absolutely

EDIT: And E02 does open its thinking to the subject a bit.
