Background information on the transmission:
The inaugural mission of Europe’s Automated Transfer Vehicle, the ATV, culminates next week. The “Jules Verne” is due to have its first docking attempt with the International Space Station on 3rd April. But before it reaches its target, the ATV will be rehearsing its automatic rendez-vous systems on two “Demonstration Days”, the first of them this evening (29/3). These will confirm the vehicle’s readiness to approach and dock safely with the orbital complex. The A & B-roll describe the different step- by-step phases of the two crucial demonstrations.
