Film-maker George Carey marks the 50th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin's 1961 flight into space by exploring the origins of the mission. He investigates how the Russian programme was inspired by a mystic who claimed that science would make humans immortal, and discovers ideas from this era have survived communism and adapted themselves into modern scientific theory.
