These programs focus on: Was there a beginning? Whether we are alone? What's the future of the cosmos?
What is the nature of reality? With each advance, new questions come into sharper focus. The key issue is what we still don't know.
Sir Martin explores the possibility that life exists on planets beyond our own. He unveils an unsettling scientific debate that has startling consequences for us Earthlings. Do you believe in aliens? If not, a quick glance through these pages might change your mind!

On the way we learn of the disturbing possibility that we could be the product of someone else’s experiment.
