2011 marks the 50th anniversary of the first man in space. Starman relates the moving tale of Yuri Gagarin, the son of a Russian peasant. This re-release of the film, (and accompanying book co-written by Jamie Doran), tells the extraordinary true story behind the legend and was described by Victor Lewis Smith as 'television at its finest.'
