Documentary which takes a fantastic voyage through the rich heritage of science TV in the UK, from real science programmes such as The Sky At Night and Horizon to sci-fi like The Quatermass Experiment and Doctor Who, to find out what it tells us about Britain over the last 60 years. The likes of David Attenborough, Robert Winston, Tim Hunt, Colin Blakemore, Tony Robinson, Patrick Moore and Johnny Ball comment on growing up with TV science and on how it has reflected our collective image of science.
