"In the last decade cutting-edge techniques have radically transformed planet hunting. Against a background of frenetic discovery, an elite band of scientists are looking for something new: alien civilisations."

 

"If it's ever going to happen, it'll happen before the mid-part of this century." As part of a global team searching for signals from E.T., Dr Seth Shostak is on the front-line of a dynamic field of research. And though a breakthrough remains elusive, the team remains optimistic that the universe is big enough for the truth to still be out there - according to head astronomer Dr. Jill Tarter, "It would be an awful waste of space if we are all there is."

 

Journeyman pictures makes intelligent and well-documented documentaries.

Many of their trailers can be used for lesson plans

Good documentary. Clear dictions, lively intonations.
the transcript makes it a great resource for various levels of listening & reading comprehension. The script isn't too difficult ( French standards:B1) A summary + some video extracts could easily be made for A2. Could make a great lesson plan.
