    Documentary telling the story of how the Russians led us into the space age.

  • 22:30 New: The Spaceman of Afghanistan
    The story of Afghan astronaut Ahad Momand, who spent a week on the Russian space station Mir in 1988. With his country still suffering violence, Ahad revisits his historic mission.

Just a heads up that BBC 4 are tonight 21.00 showing a 90 minute documentary entitled "The Cosmonauts." It will be available on the BBC website soon afterwards.

Followed by an hour long program called "The Spaceman of Afghanistan" about Afghan astronaut Ahad Momand and his visit to the Mir space station.

They both look interesting.

Editor's note: Threads merged.

Strange that there was no mention of the 1975 Apollo-Soyuz Test Project mission during Cosmonauts, especially as Alexei Leonov was interviewed.

As a runner I wouldn't have fancied running through a forest in what looked like Y-fronts either!

Great program that gave due credit to the Russians for the legacy in near-Earth exploration that remains the foundation for endurance flights.
