Beyond 2000 ~ The High Frontier

Today on Far Future Horizons "a very special episode" of the acclaimed Australian science documentary series Beyond 2000 titled "The High Frontier".

Iain Finlay writes, directs and presents this episode about the future of human space exploration.

This instalment of Beyond 2000 features Arthur C. Clarke, Eric Jones, Louis Friedman, Gerard O'Neill, Peter Glaser, Wendell Mendell, Ronald Reagan, Sen. Spark Matsunaga and others. 

This episode, which is over thirty years old, is a time capsule of our ideas on the future of humanity in space. 

I encourage our readers to visit the Beyond 2000 channel on YouTube.

Welcome to Beyond 2000, here we'll be making available the original ground-breaking series from the 1980s. Beyond 2000 was produced from 1985 to 1998, providing reports on cutting-edge science and technology of the time.  Beyond 2000 was in it's time a popular Australian science & technological innovation show/series with a host of reporters which ran for 1 hour on Channel 7 back in the 80's/90s.

Beyond 2000 was originally called Towards 2000 on the ABC then changed to Beyond 2000 when Channel 7 bought the rights to the show. Channel 10 then took over the reins in the 90's, but the ratings dropped not long after so it was cancelled. Then in 2004/2005 Beyond 2000 made a bold return as Beyond Tomorrow once again on Channel 7.
