|An eight-part series hosted by Ridley Scott that explores how the 'science fiction' of the past has now simply become 'science'. What once was just imagination is now real; what was once the distant future is now just around the corner. The science of the future was strangely prophesied by a group of visionaries whose dreams, which once may have labelled them as renegades and 'mad scientists', have become reality! Episodes include: Jules Verne, Mary Shelley, Phillip K Dick, Arthur C Clarke, Issac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, George Lucas and H.G. Wells.
