Brilliant documentary – Alien Planet

 

This is an amazing 94-minute docufiction, about two internationally built robot probes searching for alien life on the fictional planet Darwin IV. It was based on the book Expedition, by sci-fi/fantasy artist and writer Wayne Douglas Barlowe, who was also executive producer on the special. The show uses sophisticated computer-generated imagery and interviews from such notables as Stephen Hawking, George Lucas, Michio Kaku, Jack Horner and others.
