A documentary which celebrates, over the period covering the end of the 1950s and the beginning of the '60s, the phenomenon of the Everly Brothers, arguably the greatest harmony duo the world has witnessed, who directly influenced the greatest and most successful bands of the '60s and '70s - the Beatles, the Stones, the Beach Boys and Simon and Garfunkel to name but a few. Don and Phil Everly's love of music began as children, encouraged by their father Ike. Little Donnie and Baby Boy Phil sang on Ike's early morning radio shows in Iowa. After leaving school, the brothers moved to Nashville where, under the wing of Ike Everly's friend, the highly talented musician Chet Atkins, Don and Phil signed with Cadence Records. They exploded onto the music scene in 1957 with Bye Bye Love, written by Boudleaux and Felice Bryant. After Bye Bye Love came other hits, notably Wake Up Little Susie, followed by the worldwide smash hit All I Have to Do Is Dream and a long string of other great songs.

Will we ever travel to the stars, the way science fiction has imagined? For many, science fiction and rocket ships are two sides of the same coin. Ever since HG Wells and Jules Verne, travelling to the stars and beyond has been a central theme - and promise - of science fiction. Writers such as Arthur C Clarke, Robert Heinlein, and Ray Bradbury ran with these ideas and laid the groundwork for modern franchises like Star Trek and Star Wars. What's out there waiting for us - and how will the discoveries of outer space change who we are?
What makes us afraid - and why do we like it so much? Science fiction monsters allow us to explore the dark parts of ourselves, parts that we may not want to admit even exist. These science-based monsters reduce our fears - of the unknown, of transgressing, of others - to a visible, visceral presence.
