British astronaut Tim Peake is to explore the mysteries of our universe – from the planets in our solar system and the galaxies beyond - in Tim Peake: Secrets of Our Universe (w/t), a 3 x 60’ series commissioned for Channel 5.
In 2015, Tim became the first British person to live on the International Space Station. It is now Tim’s mission to share the wonder of space and his own very unique experiences, exploring the big cosmic questions and bringing the answers to life using a variety of amazing locations and immersive CGI and archive footage.
Tim Peake said: “Space is a lifelong passion for me and to be able to share my personal experiences and the knowledge I have gained with the Channel 5 audience is beyond exciting! There is always so much more to learn and uncover – we will never truly know all there is to know about the Universe – but it is endlessly fascinating to me and to people worldwide, and I am delighted to continue my journey into uncovering its mysteries.”
Lucy Willis, Commissioning Editor, Non-Scripted UK Originals, Channel 5 & Paramount + said: “I’m excited that Tim Peake has agreed to take us on this incredible journey into our solar system. I can’t think of anyone better to guide us than a man who knows what it feels like to have walked in space.”
Oliver Wright, Head of Factual & Features, VIS UK said: “We are thrilled to be unlocking the Universe’s greatest secrets with Tim, a man whose unique insight will make this an unmissable treat.”
