The Space Programme

This is an official plea for assistance.

The Earth is imperiled. Resources are being depleted at an unprecedented rate. Politics is in turmoil across the globe. It is no longer possible to engage with others without owning accounts for Netflix, Now TV and Amazon Prime simultaneously.

The People are dangerously close to being without hope.

We need brave individuals to offer themselves for the next phase of human existence: off-world. We are preparing a flight manifest of those willing to join us in our first efforts to colonise a new world – a better world, not so far, far away. We call it: PROXIMA V.

Well – maybe. It’s an idea, anyway. We’re not quite ready to abandon all hope just yet. It’s easy to feel despair in these times of political and economic uncertainty – but we look to the skies and find no sign of any limits to human creativity and passion.

Join us on PROXIMA V – a carefully selected strand of sci-fi and space shows designed to make you smile, and make you think about where we’re all headed. Check out the programme below and reach for the stars.
