Wednesday 25 November aired the last episode of the Klokhuis Heelal series that was recorded in part at the Westerbork Synthesis Radio Telescope (WSRT). The size of the audience has been excellent; e.g. episode 2, on the outer planets (image above) drew 380.000 viewers — the Klokhuis team is very excited about this success. Our own Joeri van Leeuwen was part of the team.

How were these series realized? Above you can see the various stages for a single scene of episode 2, our fly-by of Saturn’s moon Titan. It all starts with an idea from the director, Yvonne Smits. She and her producers and editors pitch it to the TV network.
