Unavailable in any video format since its original broadcast outings, this BFI DVD edition of the cult children's science fiction series will delight its many fans, who will remember the unmistakable face of its central figure, the alien boy Peep-Peep.

Across ten episodes, The Boy from Space follows a brother and sister, Dan and Helen, who encounter a young alien child who they name Peep-Peep. When Peep-Peep and his father are kidnapped by the terrifying Thin Space Man, it is up to Dan and Helen to follow a trail of clues to find their new friend.

Originally broadcast (in black and white) in 1971, as part of the BBC's educational 'Look and Read' strand, The Boy from Space was re-broadcast in 1980 in a revised version featuring the characters Wordy and Cosmo. This long-awaited DVD edition includes the 1980 broadcast version, along with recordings from the original BBC Records spoken word vinyl release, and a specially-prepared, uninterrupted version of the original drama sequences.
