It is believed to be the first fully animated 3D stereoscopic astronomy documentary and includes photographs and data with NASA's permission from Voyager 2 and the Hubble Telescope.

Shaun Fergus Fields - known as Fergus -  also created a 2D version. It is the 2D version that will be screened on Sunday, June 19 in Saffron Walden.

Fergus taught himself how to animate, bought hardware and software and created the documentary after many years of research and work.

He said he was delighted that Living in the Universe has now been awarded a U-certificate, meaning it is suitable for all ages.

"It's fantastic that it's getting another screening," he said. "I had positive feedback the last time it was screened."

It is being shown at Saffron Screen on Sunday, June 19 at 2pm
