The two Voyager Space Probes that were launched in 1977 may have less computing power that a modern-day hearing aid, but they have achieved so much.

As the probes are about to enter deep space, we look into the history of these probes which have discovered so much and have survived many a near miss, as well as hearing from some of the people behind the making of the probes.

The Farthest: Voyager’s Interstellar Journey is on BBC Four at 21.00.
