From the BAFTA Best
Factual Series of 1971 a classic and visually exciting study of a supernova 'death star'.
The Crab Nebula
'The history of the Crab more closely resembles a tale of mystery and imagination than a sober scientific recital.'
When a leading physicist said this in 1961 even he could not have forecast the next ten years' twists and turns in the plot of this vintage detective story.
On a world-wide stage a series of astonishing discoveries about a single object in the sky reflect the whole of modern astronomy. The investigation begins in 1054 when Chinese astronomers recorded the cataclysmic destruction of a star the remains of which are now the Crab. It ends with a question: is this the death that makes all life possible? Narrator Paul Vaughan

by JEREMY SANDFORD
This award-winning play is an outstanding example of the BBC's long tradition of presenting powerful plays based on national problems and the social ills of society. Patricia Hayes 's memorable performance as a loveable female vagrant won her the year's top Television Drama Award.
I found this the most moving 'Play for Today' yet, all the more truthful for being so well laced with comedy. It did honour to everybody involved.
