Scientist renews Beagle-2 quest

Oxford University's Colin Wilson is re-flying the wind sensor he designed for the ill-fated Beagle-2 Mars lander in 2003.

It is on the Schiaparelli probe that will attempt to touch down on the Red Planet on Wednesday.

Dr Wilson discusses the sensor with our correspondent Jonathan Amos. He also addresses more broader questions about the European Space Agency's ExoMars programme, of which Schiaparelli is a part.
