This special collector's edition of the landmark program has been digitally remastered and restored and features new footage and updates.

2002. Press information It's great...it brings back wonderful childhood memories for me.
I didn't purchase it for the Tangerine Dream content, but rather because I watched the series when it was originally broadcast back in 1980. And, in hindsight, I think it played a fundamental role in getting me interested in electronic music. Aside from heaps of Vangelis, there was some Synergy, Tomita, Klaus Schulze, Brian Eno, Gary Numan, even Pink Floyd.

It's also amazing how timely Sagan's words still are, 20 years later.
Humanity remains in danger of 'destroying itself', even after the collapse of the Soviet Union (which was still The Evil Empire back when Cosmos was written). I'd also forgotten the whole segment about the destruction of the Library of Alexandria, and how it set back the progression of human knowledge by 1,000 years.
Some of the show's effects are cheesy by today's standards, but Sagan's obvious enthusiasm for the material, and his shining intellect, overcome any impulse to giggle.

2002. Sean Montgomery These are the Cue sheets from the origional Television release of Cosmos. This is not the list for the Turner re-broadcast or the video cassette releases. Rather than get the proper rights for the re-issues, they comissioned a new score.
