You wont see any Martians in Invaders to Mars, but you will see volcanoes, canyons and storms that engulf the entire planet. Everythings based on the data that weve been collecting since we sent the first probes and spacecraft to explore Mars in 1964. In the 40 years since then, our technology has made incredible leaps forward, but Big Red has stayed the same rich, raging and an object of infinite fascination. English actor Tom Baker (from the BBCs Dr. Who) narrates. 12:30 and 2:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, 12:30, 2:30, and 5:30 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
