Carlton for CITV, 2003-4

Four children are invited to spend a week aboard a space station, training to be an astronaut. They carry out drills involving practical skills, reactions, and hand-eye coordination. At the end of the week, the winning cadet will go to Star City in Russia for some real cosmonaut training.

Unlike any regular children's game show, Starfinder doesn't have some sort of points system for determining the winner. The person who does best at the training tasks won't necessarily be the winner. Instead, the contestant who most impresses the voting public will emerge triumphant. Children (and adults) send their votes via SMS and premium rate phone votes, or via the station's website.
