    Originally a documentary style show on ITV1 hosted by Fiona Phillips (with a team boasting Twiggy, Nigel Havers, Patsy Palmer & Tracie Bennett) the show aired once a week on Friday nights. The show then returned as a regular slot hosted by Jeff Brazier and various other presenters on This Morning. After Richard Desmond's takeover of five in 2010, he decided to axe magazine show Live from Studio Five in favour of bringing back the OK! TV format. Originally Matt Johnson and Denise Van Outen were announced as the hosts of the show, however Denise pulled out at the last minute, so LFSF host Kate Walsh took on the role. With the launch of Celebrity Big Brother launching within August 2011, the show relocated to Elstree studios and rebranded with new hosts Jeff Brazier and Jenny Frost on August 17th 2011. Channel five then returned to ITN as it's news provider, thus the Sky produced OK! TV was cancelled and it's last episode aired on December 16th 2011.moreless

    What once was just imagination is now real; what was once the distant future is now around the corner. The "Science Fiction" of the past has now simply become "Science". And the science of the future was strangely prophesied by a group of visionaries whose dreams once may have deemed them renegades and "mad scientists," have become reality!In 1950, the term "Robotics" was coined by author Isaac Asimov in his book I.ROBOT and our collective imagination reeled. In the years since, literature, movies and television have allowed us to embrace the notion that the ideas of a few inspired visionaries could be made real. What is more astonishing is that these ideas have been, are currently and will be put to practice in our everyday lives. Each episode of the upcoming series PROPHETS OF SCIENCE FICTION will focus on how the great minds of Science Fiction imagined our future for us, and how some, in turn, made their fantasies real.In a dynamic hyper-stylized way that has never been seen before … we will take a tour of what was, and what will be through the eyes of the visionary authors, illustrators, filmmakers, and scientists who have become the PROPHETS OF SCIENCE FICTION!moreless
