Modern day science prophesied by fiction writers
PROPHETS OF SCIENCE FICTION is an eight-part series directed by Ridley Scott and also featuring Oscar Winner George Lucas.
What once was just imagination is now a reality and what was once the distant future is now just around the corner. The "Science Fiction" of the past has now simply become "Science". And the science of the future was strangely prophesied by a group of visionaries whose dreams once may have deemed them renegades and "mad scientists," have become reality!
Each episode will examine, dissect, measure, scrutinise and celebrate the life; ideas, convictions, philosophies and genius of each legend from the science fiction realm, each of these greats are pillars of the genre, representing the most ground-breaking conceptual viewpoints of their era. Notable for some of today’s greatest sci-fi concepts these scholars will forever be remembered in the minds of young and old!
Episodes include Mary Shelley, Phillip K. Dick, H.G. Wells, Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov, Jules Verne, Robert Heinlein and George Lucas.
