Who are these... yoomans?

Got hold of Carl Sagan's Cosmos DVD boxed set today, which I managed to find on eBay a couple of weeks back for rather less than the $100+ that Amazon want for it.

When it was first aired in the 80s-- and it's never been repeated since in the UK, AFAIK, at least not on a terrestrial channel-- I remember being blown away by the visual effects, the music (mostly from Vangelis' Heaven & Hell album), and the suitably epic feel of the whole thing. I also remember missing the very last episode, about which I was rather upset at the time, so I'm looking forward to seeing it all again. (It should certainly help fill the pre-bedtime TV hole in our new house that's still waiting for NTL to get off their cretinous backsides and join two wires together in our living room.)
