Alien Worlds

  • 2005
  • 2 x 1 hour
  • Channel 4/National Geographic

In Alien Worlds, leading scientists from all over the globe report from the Planetary Investigation Lab – where they assess the most likely locations for extra-terrestrial life. Under investigation are two new planets, the Blue Moon, world of flyers, and Aurelia, the land of light and dark.

Using the latest computer generated imaging (CGI) and 3-D effects, Alien Worlds takes you on a galactic journey to these new planets and brings you face to face with alien life forms – like the skywhales, gulphogs, stinger fans, and caped stalkers.

On Blue Moon with its dense atmosphere, meet flying sky whales, three-eyed stalkers and alien forests more than a kilometre high. On Aurelia, the land of light and darkness, you’ll encounter six-legged mudpods, the killer hysteria and the creeping stinger fans. And this is no fantasy. . . scientists believe we could discover worlds like them in the next 10 years.


"A-plus effort from National Geographic. Visually captivating and just plain cool." - TV Guide
“Fun television taking on serious science. These are serious and accomplished scientists - legitimate guys applying everything they know about stars, planetary systems, planetary evolution, and most especially, the evolution of life, to speculate on what life might be like on other worlds. In a word, the outcome is WILD! “Extraterrestrial” offers an imaginative trip into the future. Don’t miss your chance to visit alien worlds from the comfort of your living room couch." - Space.com
"I just wanted to congratulate you for the extraordinary work you have been doing on the Extraterrestrial project. We are really impressed by the overall quality of the project, and the standard of the footage." - Carolin Behar, France 5
