Based on Ray Bradbury's sweeping sci-fi classic, this 1979 mini-series details the mystery, wonder and horror of humankind's attempts to leave Earth and establish a new culture on Mars. Scientists travel to Mars to study its atmosphere and terrain, and decide that earthlings can dwell safely in this new environment--but some in the group learn that an alien life form might exist beneath the planet's surface. Everyone will eventually learn that the colonization of Mars might not be welcomed by its present inhabitants...and with good reason. This epic television production originally aired in three parts. Darren McGavin, Roddy McDowell, Rock Hudson, and Bernie Casey star.
