The Universe is big, and planet Earth is unlikely to be the only place where life has popped up.  But how do we go about finding it?

At last!  A guide to the search for extra-terrestrials!  Join CBBCs Mark Brake and Jon Chase as they show you HOW it all began with ships, WHY our planet is such a great place for life, WHICH ingredients caused life to begin in the oceans, WHERE creatures could evolve in the Universe, WHEN aliens might have existed, WHAT they might look like and HOW we might be able to talk with them!
