Fans Of Monty Python, Life, Science, And All Other Nerds Stop And Watch This Now

Fans of The Meaning of Life will recognize the tune; all others will smile along with this show promo anyway.

Prof. Brian Cox

To promote the series Wonders of Life featuring Professor Brian Cox exploring the, erm, wonders of life, the BBC has rolled out a most appropriate (wonderful) trailer.

The 3:30 trailer showcases clip after eye-popping clip of nature in all its majesty and weirdness. But it’s the track that makes this promo special. The video is set to the tune of "Galaxy Song" from the seminal The Meaning of Life, sung originally and here by Eric Idle.
