Sunday 22nd March 5:00pm
Run time: 136 minutes
March 1965, and the Soviet astronaut Aleksei Leonov is caught up in the race to become the first man to walk in space.
At the height of the Cold War and the USSR-USA Space Race, Aleksei Leonov and his co-pilot are attempting humanity's first-ever spacewalk. What could possibly go wrong? Battling technical mishaps in faulty spacesuits, Yevgeni Mironov and Kosntantin Khabensky star as the hot-headed test pilot and the weary war veteran who keep you on the edge of your seat.
