When brother and sister Dan and Helen see a mysterious object falling from the sky one night, they set out to look for traces of a meteorite in the nearby sandpit. There, they are confronted by a strange thin man, and discover a boy called Peep-peep who speaks a bizarre alien language. Originally broadcast in 1971, as part of the BBC's educational 'Look and Read' strand, 'The Boy from Space' was shown again in 1980 in a revised version featuring new presenters Wordy and Cosmo, as well as updates - including a new foreword and a voice-over - to the main drama.
