Space Pirates was a British children's television series directed by Bridget Caldwell that originally aired on CBeebies, a channel for preschoolers.[1] It featured Luke Toulson as "Captain DJ" and Dominic Byrne, Radio 1's newsreader, as an alien news/weather/travel reporter named Zorst. It featured a mixture of live-action and CG animation and was set aboard a spaceship orbiting the Earth.


The plot of the show generally revolved around Captain DJ travelling space to find music for his radio channel, Guisto Radio. Along the way, two kids named Honk and Tonk would try to sell him useless junk for money or food.


30 episodes were produced and aired from November 3rd, 2007, to March 22nd, 2008. The show was never released on home media and is unlikely to ever be due to the rights issues inherent in licensing the 90+ songs which appear in the programs.

In May 2015, all 30 episodes were uploaded by Lost Media Wiki contributor "Nathan" to MEGA. The MEGA link has since expired, meaning the files could no longer be downloaded.

In 2019, four episodes of the program were uploaded to YouTube by Warrick Brownlow-Pike, one of the show's assistant puppeteers. In 2020, the YouTube channel Media Recover uploaded a further seventeen. After Media Recoverer's uploads, a range of other channels started uploading episodes themselves, including RA2008 and MediaHallyway.

Copies of the episodes which currently exist tend to vary between standard episodes of the series and signed episodes of the series which feature someone doing sign language of the dialogue in the corner of the screen (a common practice for BBC shows). Nevertheless, as of October 2021, a full version of every episode of the series is now available on YouTube.
