Mars is a fictional series that tells the story of the first astronaut crew on a mission to Mars in 2033 and the show will also feature interviews with actual scientific experts.
Meanwhile, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds recently shared a video for ‘Girl In Amber’. The song features on their latest album ‘Skeleton Tree’ which was released alongside One More Time With Feeling, a documentary film about the recording process and the death of Cave’s son.
One More Time With Feeling will be back in cinemas from December 1, and there will also be opportunities to crowd-source additional screenings. Tickets are on sale now and more information is available from Cave’s official website.
Arthur Cave tragically died after falling from a cliff in Brighton last July. The Cave family described the 15-year-old as “our beautiful, happy loving boy.”
Cave decided to make a documentary to avoid having to discuss the death of his son with the media.
