The invaders have landed!  Narrated by Tom Baker of the BBC’s Dr. Who, under the care of Emmy award winning space artist Don Davis, this beautifully crafted show highlights our ongoing exploration of Mars. We explore the Martian surface as seen by Earth’s various spacecraft “invaders” and use the data gathered to explore the red planet. We fly over the great chasms, canyons, and volcanoes, and descend amid the ice of a Martian polar cap, and are buffeted by swirling dust devils. Blinded by the planet-wide storms which engulf this world from time to time we emerge to discover a whole new world which is the red planet Mars.
