From Doctor Who to Star Wars, the four-part BBC2 documentary series Tomorrow’s World: The Unearthly History of Science Fiction explores our continuing fascination for all things Sci-Fi. Space, Invasion, Robots and Time are four themes covered by historian Dominic Sandbrook, who uses the show to checklist all our fave classics on the big and small screen.
