Heather Couper presents a narrative history of astronomy.
She looks at the prospects for life elsewhere in our own solar system. Could evidence of life have even been discovered already on Mars? She tells the story of the search for extra-terrestrial intelligence as scientists scan the skies for messages from the stars.
Readers are Timothy West, Robin Sebastian, Julian Rhind-Tutt and John Palmer.
