I thought it was too long & often found my mind wandering. What I did get from it certainly was thought provoking.

This is a documentary originally broadcast as a TV program in 1999.
Are we alone in the universe, or is there life out there?
Do other intelligent beings also speculate about their place in the cosmos?
The story of the search for extraterrestrial life is told in this two-part film.
The film explains why many scientists believe that life is abundant throughout the universe, and considers how radio telescope could be used to log on to an interstellar internet to contact alien civilizations.
It is a fascinating and thought-provoking documentary.
