This episode is a Re-Narrated version of the 2019 Brian Cox series 'Planets' episode titled "A Moment in the Sun"
There's considerable alteration to the script used, with a more sensationalist emphasis in the narration - beautifully read in dramatic voice by Zachary Quinto - no doubt to match the US audience target demographics, rather then the wide-eyed-wonder pitch used in the BBC program for the rest of the world.
Some elements also seem to be dumbed down a little from the script used by Dr Cox, and all of his appearances as presenter are removed.
Overall, this is a good target-specific program, no doubt appropriate for use in US schools, but is a somewhat paler shadow of the standout original.
This one is highly enjoyable, but if you can find the BBC version in your feeds, watch that instead.
