An obscure 16th Century scholar built on the Book of Revelations and came up with a set of remarkable predictions for the future, quickly becoming our present. Quoting straight from the seer himself, this program presents the oracle's belief that our lives will all soon end. Deciphering Nostradamus can be difficult--he often encoded his writing so as not to offend the Church of his time, and interpreting what world events correspond to what predictions can be a problem. Not dismissed easily, Nostradamus remains the most troubling and studied prophet of the Renaissance, whose forecasts become more relevant each day.Show more
Even the most casual UFO observer has heard of the Roswell incident in New Mexico in 1947, but few are aware of an equally startling UFO crash 35 years later on a Welsh farm. A wide area of debris rained on the land, and as in Roswell, the military authorities arrived and couldn't offer a plausible explanation. The difference in Wales is that local residents managed to collect pieces of the wreckage from the nearby woods before the area was sealed off and the cover-up went into full operation. Eventually the woods was leveled to the ground and all evidence erased, but bits and pieces still remain in private hands. Analysis has shown these UFO remnants are in fact aircraft material, but nobody can identify who or how this material was made.Show more

Patrick Troughton plays the second Doctor in this four-episode adventure from 1967, set on Earth's moon and featuring a return appearance by the emotionless Cybermen. The year is 2070, and Earth's weather is controlled by a device called the Gravitron, based on the Moon and manned by an international team of experts. The TARDIS arrives to find the base in the grip of a plague epidemic which is drastically reducing the personnel. Before long an even greater menace is proved to be responsible - an invasion force from the planet Mondas, home of the Cybermen... The soundtrack presented here includes linking narration by Frazer Hines, who played Jamie in the story itself. It includes the only surviving versions of episodes 1 and 3, whose film recordings no longer exist in the BBC Television Archives. Playing alongside Patrick Troughton and Frazer Hines are Michael Craze as Ben, Anneke Wills as Polly, and Patrick Barr as Hobson.Show more
