Channel: SABC2
TX Time: 19h00

It's 2068, the Earth is overcrowded, and Mars was not what everyone thought. In the 2050s B-Earth or B-Planet, a replica of the present Earth, is discovered. A global race kicks off in 2066 to reach this planet first, so it can be ruled.

After the Springbok united the nation with the World Cup, a group of scientists, phycologists and Aeronautical Engineers decided to build a spacecraft called The Flying Springbokkie to participate in the race.

The diverse crew of six members has been selected according to their IQ (intelligence quotient) and EQ (emotional intelligence). This classification was established in 2028 when people are no longer classified by race, but according to their intelligence and their emotional strength.
