Listen To Theories on the Beginning of the Universe as Narrated by Gillian Anderson

Recommended Videos

If you’ve ever wanted to make your studies on the theories of how the universe formed more exciting, look no further. The BBC has teamed up with The X-Files star Gillian Anderson (along with several others) to create a series of videos explaining concepts and theories such as the Big Bang, William Paley’s “Divine Watchmaker”, Thomas Aquinas’ “First Mover” and the Hindu creation story.

Anderson has spoken at length in the past about pulling off both an American and an English accent after spending formative years on both sides of the Atlantic; she’s definitely embracing her inner Brit in the voiceovers for these videos.

The Big Bang video is made especially adorable thanks to the X-Files reference, which you can watch below via YouTube:

Clearly Gillian needs to do way more in terms of reading audiobooks, right? I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: she could read the phone book and I’d be engrossed.
