Man In Space: 1. Space Frontier - Human space exploration, from Yuri Gagarin's first orbit of space to the race for the Moon and the Apollo landings. 2. High Life - Living and working in space, triumphs, tragedies and everyday practicalities on the Russian space-station Mir and America's Space Shuttle. 3. Where Next? - The possibility of a spaceport in Earth-orbit, the colonisation of the Moon and Mars, the taming of Venus, plus an elevator into space! Pioneers: 1. Breakthrough! - From the ancient sky-watchers of Babylon to space-age cosmology, the story of astronomy featuring Copernicus, Kepler, Galileo, Newton and Hubble. 2. Earth Patrol - Launched into Earth-orbit, these are the satellites that monitor the health of our planet. Looking at the ozone, the melting ice-caps, weather, deforestation and navigation. 3. Robots - A look at our scouts in the Solar System. Probes that trail-blaze on Mars, plunge into Jupiter and land on Saturn's moon Titan. Cosmic Focus: 1. Hubble's Eye - After astronauts fix its faulty optics, the Hubble Space Telescope peers back through time to the depths of the cosmos. 2. Light Fantastic - Visible light reveals only part of the Universe. We look at how other wavelengths fill out the picture, from gamma-rays to radio. 3. Milky Way - Our galaxy explored and light years explained. Looking at the life and death of stars, supernovae and the clouds where stars are born. Deep Space: 1. Infinity - Looking at the structure of the Universe, galaxies, clusters, strands and how we measure to a nearby galaxy and to the farthest quasar. 2. Big Bang, Big Crunch - The theory of the Big Bang explained and how from that cataclysmic explosion the Universe continues to expand, but will it stop and reverse? 3. Black Holes, Dark Matter - Although invisible, black holes betray their presence, which is the same with dark matter: the missing 90% of the Universe.
