Filming Tim Peake for BBC Horizon Special

The BBC had exclusive access to Tim Peake as he prepared for his mission to the International Space Station. This involved following Tim’s training across the World for almost 2 years in Moscow, Houston, Cologne and Baikonur. Supplemented by Tim’s own video diary, the result was a Horizon Special that revealed just what it took to be an Astronaut. Producer Simon Winchcombe will introduce a special screening of the programme and then discuss how it was made including answering questions from the audience.
