We now conclude our discussion of A for Andromeda, the 1961 BBC serial written by astronomer Fred Hoyle along with John Elliot. When scientists receive a message from the Andromeda Galaxy, they follow its instructions and build a powerful computer. They run the program that was included in the message, but what will it do?

We discuss the 1962 sequel The Andromeda Breakthrough, two remakes, the novelizations and more about the original serial….
This discussion includes more spoilers than most episodes of British Invaders.
