Storyline

A group of starry-eyed applicants are auditioned to undergo intensive training in Russia before being flown 100 kilometers up into near space. Here, they will spend up to five days orbiting the Earth, conducting experiments and quite literally watching the world go by - or will they? Unbeknown to them, they won't be in space at all... They won't even be in Russia. They'll actually be in a disused military base at a secret location somewhere in the UK, possibly the most audacious, complicated and ambitious practical joke in television history.

Space Cadets
4 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

For a short reality show type programme, this was a pretty essential thing to see. Basically they take nine ordinary members of the public, and the producers and Johnny Vaughn are going to convince them that they are going to Russia to become astronauts. Three people also joining these nine are three actors to make sure nothing goes wrong. After at least a week or so of training the four chosen, one being an actor, are made to think they are really going to space for a little while. When it is all over and they have experienced no weightlessness (they were told why) they finally found out it was all fake. The three that were genuine were pretty gutted, amused and obviously gullible. Good!
