Thank you for sharing this.

There is a PBS series called "Mysteries of the Universe" (what a dumb
title) that is doing excellent interviews with astronomers making
breakthroughs in space research, such as the discovery of new planets
and the processes by which stars create new planets. Wonderful
computer graphics and space photography as well. It's in my area
now, but it may make the rounds of other stations.
