Peter Evans visits the SETI Institute in California to meet the researchers whose life work has been to scan the heavens for signals from other beings.

Frontiers looks to the heavens this week, and asks the question that has puzzled humanity for all time - are we alone? Peter Evans visits a small group of dedicated scientists who have made it there life's work to try and answer this question.
