    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.
