Skylark - Britain's First Space Rocket

Few people have heard of the Skylark sounding rocket yet, in November 1957, it was the first British rocket to reach space and became the basis of Britain's earliest space programme. Robin Brand will talk us through how hundreds were fired, launching thousands of scientific instruments into space.
