What would really happen if we got a message from space? How would humans react if we learnt there was a spaceship on its way to Earth? Setting out a plausible hypothetical scenario for a first contact event, ‘Alien Encounters' probes the minds of some of the world's leading astrophysicists, astrobiologists and sci-fi writers, to explore how alien life might communicate with humanity. Featuring fascinating insights from experts including Nick Sagan, the son of SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) founder Carl Sagan, this compelling two part documentary unravels the scientific, cultural and psychological impact of this intriguing world-changing event.
