Behind-The-Scenes Pix #18: UFO

SHADO Interceptors race across the surface of the Moon with the help of a special effects technician in Gerry Anderson's 1970 series, UFO. Still one of my favorite spaceship designs of the era - even if they only had one missile each!


  1. Agreed. The launch sequence was the best. Barry Grays music added a real punch to the scene.

  2. Hello!

    I wanted to let you know that I have given your blog an award.

    I love this site and I am always thrilled when you give us a new DVD announcement. This was the golden age of SciFi on TV and I am so happy that your blog is out here sharing all of this.

  3. First - wow! Love your site! Glad to see others with fond memories of this great time in sci-fi keeping the torch lit!

    Second - I agree... best spaceships with the best launch music ever...and those tubes the pilots would slide down to (presumably) land in their cockpit? Classic!
