Quirky documentary about Britain's first interplanetary probe, which is due to blast off on a Russian rocket in a few days' time. Beagle 2, the robot probe that will land on Mars and possibly discover signs of new life forms, is the brainchild of Professor Colin Pillinger of the Open University. An unusual man with unusual methods, this story is a testament to his efforts to get the project off the ground.
Named after the ship that took Charles Darwin on his famous voyage, British space probe Beagle 2 heads for Mars

Professor Colin Pillinger of the Open University sports wild bushy whiskers and chunky woollen jumpers, and he's a wizard with a mass spectrometer. A what? It's a device the size of a small car that can weigh and count atoms of individual rare elements. When news broke in 1996 that there could be life on Mars, Pillinger decided he had to create a reliable mass spectrometer that would fit into the tiny British robot space probe, Beagle 2. But to do this, as he describes today, he had to get sponsors. "The role of a modern scientist in my case is to be a professor of PR as well as a professor of planetary sciences. And in the meantime I've become a pop entrepreneur; I do a bit of art with Damien," he told the BBC last year. To raise the profile of the probe, he got Blur to compose a call sign and Damien Hirst to paint a calibration chart. The publicity worked: Beagle 2 blasts off in a few days' time, carrying with it examples of Brit pop, Britart and Brit brilliance.

- not those of today.

50s, you can navigate by issue.
