BBC Studios ANZ, along with experts from the BBC Studios Science Unit, are tackling a special edition of Stargazing, to mark the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landings.
Airing on ABC Australia, Stargazing: Moon and Beyond is a one-hour special, filmed in front of a live studio audience, with hosts Professor Brian Cox and Julia Zemiro.
A BBC Studios format, Stargazing will be produced by the new production arm in Australia for the first time, with the majority of the crew drawn from the local production industry.
The ABC’s season of programs marking the 50th anniversary of the moon landing also features BBC Studios’ new series, The Planets, showcasing our solar system like never before.
“We’re really excited to be working with the BBC to create a show that pushes the boundaries on what a factual studio show can look and feel like and to develop the Stargazing brand across our different platforms,” said Aidan Laverty, ABC’s manager of science, in a statement.
