Horizon "Cosmic Dawn: The Real Moment of Creation" 11 July 2022: Monday on BBC Four 11

Forget the big bang. The real moment of creation was the cosmic dawn – the moment of first light. This is the scientific version of the story of Genesis.

The big bang gets all the credit for creating our universe. But in fact, the universe it gave was dark and boring. There were no stars, no galaxies, just a vast, black fog of gas – the cosmic dark ages.

But, after a hundred million years of nothing, came a dramatic moment of transformation – the cosmic dawn. It’s the moment the first stars were born, the moment that lit up the universe, and made the first structure and the first ingredients of life. This was the real moment of creation.

Astronomers are now trying to witness the cosmic dawn. For the first time they have the tools to explore the very first stars of the universe and to tell the scientific story of our creation.
