I'd say that even during my time of BK involvement, I continued to prefer Yogananda's historical angle. However, I did not have the depth of meditional experience with SRF that I was subsequently lucky enough to have with the BK, so I guess in their different ways, I've found aspects of both paths to be enlightening.
I am not sure what connection there is, if any, between the SRF and the video's distributors who call themselves the Binary Research Institute, but for anyone interested to find out more about the Great Year, some more links:
The BRI appears to employ and associate itself with genuine research physicists, in its efforts to prove that precession is caused by a companion star to our Sun. They also seem to be successfully wooing many other leading lights on the alternative science stage.

All of which must surely be quite satisfying for the folk at SRF, to see an independent research body hard at work attempting to verify their cosmology!
Thanks for your effort and these links.
Not being so scientifically minded, I do find all these research material into "time and space" quite boggling, its a far cry from the simple BK solution that everything is in cyclic 5000 years, 5 ages and 3 aspects of time. However, there is always good motive to see both the simple and the complex so as to give a broader understanding, so hence very much appreciated for these links.
In the BRI site, there is something about the precession of the Equinox, so now I can appreciate the old early 70s song "Age of Aquarius" by the band 5th Dimension, way before my time though. :P
The BRI stuff is neccessarily complex. But Yoganandas rendering is not so demanding..atleast not if you're the sort of person used to swallowing cyclic time concepts without blinking an eye!
Lost of similarities, but a few more differences:
- Such as 24000 years instead of 5000.
Equal periods of waxing and waning rather than 98% descent and 2% ascent (confluence)
A nadir of human conciousness around 500 AD rather than 2000AD.
Electromagnetic/gravity source of external influence rather than deity.
and a few etcs.
