Episode 3

Helen Keen presents her off-beat, comic but factually correct history of space travel, starring Peter Serafinowicz as The Voice of Space with other parts played by Susy Kane.

Written by Helen Keen and Miriam Underhill
Produced by Gareth Edwards

This week, we take a look at the breathtaking drama of the space race and its evil twin the Cold War; the brilliant but secret life and tragically banal death of the Soviet Union's best rocket science; and the surprising tale of the last man on the moon (so far) and the songs he sang.

The series stars stars Helen Keen, Peter Serafinowicz and Susy Kane.
