For this week's Page One, Charles Adrian looks into the future and the past and alternative reality and other planets. It's a whistle stop tour of science fiction and should satisfy the soul of anybody who has ever wondered what things might be like if they were different.
Charles Adrian writes: "I can only apologise for the offensively bad Scottish accent used at around the 13-minute mark."
