SATURDAY 14 MAY 2011

SAT 00:00 The Laxian Key (b007k30w)
Episode 4

Evans the Welsh vigilante aims to senselessly bomb the planetary decontaminationists for melting Earth.

Stephen Hawking once warned us that our species could soon be wiped out by plagues, asteroids and our tendency to destroy ourselves. The solution, he suggested, was for us to colonise other planets. But Chris Larner and David Gilbert's sci-fi comedy sees the truth as a little more complicated.

The Laxian Key shows how, as soon as Man steps onto another planet, he promptly fouls it up just as he did earth. The heroes of this wonderfully wacky tale are two interplanetary decontaminationists.
