I thoroughly enjoyed "Elegant Universe" and "Universe" too. There's a series being broadcast at the moment called "Solar Empire" that is also very good.

I have also seen some very good 1-off programs about physics, the names of which I cannot recall. There was 1 recently that was presented by Brian Cox from CERN and that was fascinating. It was about the Standard Model and the search for the Higgs boson.

"What the bleep do we know" is utter rubbish. If you truly want to learn about quantum mechanics you need to learn to crawl before you can walk. You need to invest time and effort learning, not watching and being led astray by this pseudoscience bullshit.

Thoughts do not effect water.

Apparently most of the people in the film are actually associated with a cult, whose leader, J.Z. Knight, "channels a 35,000 year-old warrior named Ramath."

It tries to introduce spirituality by masquerading it as science. Please don't be fooled. Apply critical thinking to everything anyone tries to tell you. Don't even believe me telling you this, look into it critically yourself.

I find that most science documentaries either skip over or badly/incorrectly simplify many concepts but the worst thing they do is to try to sensationalise everything.  In a typical science program, about half will be ok but the other half will end up irritating me.

I also saw the one-off prog that Doc Beaver referred to, presented by Brian Cox, about the Standard Model and the Higg's Boson and have to agree that it was pretty good, very good in fact.  It didn't annoy me once  :D
