UK distributor Espresso Media International has sent its latest space documentary Is Anybody Out There? (pictured) to Australian broadcaster Foxtel.

The 52-minute special, which also aired on Spain’s TVE, finds leading scientists using the latest technology to question the existence of extraterrestrial life by examining the 72-second-long signal from the Sagittarius constellation in 1977 and the recent discovery of Earth-like planets by the Kepler Satellite.

The film is the latest space-themed addition to the slate of the recently rebranded distributor. Other titles include NASA’s 10 Greatest Achievements and The Sky Is Not the Limit: The Chris Hadfield Story.

Is Anybody Out There? is to premiere in Australia tomorrow (October 24) at 8:30 p.m. AEST, on Foxtel’s History HD channel.

“We believe Is Anybody Out There? has had such an international draw because the topic of space exploration remains high on the broadcast agenda,” said David Hooper, MD of Espresso Media International, in a statement. “We’re in talks with a number of other territories so we’re confident this is the first deal of many.”
