The year is 2171 and the launch day of the world's first time machine. The Professor arrives at a secret laboratory to discover both the machine and her faithful assistant Doctor Copernicus have disappeared. With only one hour of power in the engines and an untested navigation system, locating him is going to be almost impossible. Can you help the Professor solve the musical clues to bring back Doctor Copernicus before he is lost in time and space… forever?

Join the London Symphony Orchestra for an exciting musical adventure. Created by the same team who brought you Game Over and Voyager and featuring the music of Bach, Berlioz, Bernstein, Bliss, Pärt, Rossini, Shostakovich and Silvestri.
