Heston Blumenthal and his team, working closely with the UK Space Agency, ESA and NASA, attempt to revolutionise the previously limited world of space food. British astronaut Tim Peake set Heston a task before embarking on his mission at the International Space Station, which was to create seven dishes that would remind him of home, helping to combat the emotional impact of his journey. Heston takes Tim on a nostalgic trip back to his childhood with every bite, providing much-needed comfort food and creating the quintessential cup of tea - the first to be sipped in Space.
In December of 1944, Lionel Evans, an internationally renowned American conductor, is on a USO tour with his 70-piece symphony orchestra in newly-liberated Belgium.

Despite orders to execute every prisoner, General Schiller, an avid music lover, commands Evans to give a private concert for him.
