A documentary on the origins of aurorae borealis and current research into this phenomenon, including ESA's planned Cluster mission of four satellites. The programme features location recordings of Spitzbergen, mainly of polar landscapes and small settlements but also of radar antennae to track aurorae. There are also interviews with ESA's Science Director, Mr Roger Bonnet. The aurora recordings were provided by the Finnish Meteorological Institute and are from Finland. The programme used some general ESA material (animation, Ariane launch etc.)
ESA has acquired full non-exclusive copyright in the Spitzbergen location recordings.
