SPACE: 1999 (1975) Landau/Bain Intro

Here's a couple of cool video artifacts I recently stumbled across. When the premiere episode of Space: 1999, "Breakaway," debuted in the United States, it was evidently accompanied in some markets by a specially-filmed introduction (and closing tag) by series stars Martin Landau and Barbara Bain, tailored to specific stations (note in the video above, that Bain name checks the local broadcaster). The clip above also includes the first couple minutes of the episode.

The clip below is Landau and Bain's concluding remarks at the end of the show and a preview of "Dragon's Domain." Enjoy (as long as the vids remain on YouTube, anyway)!!


  1. Wow, Barbara Bain always had a lovely voice. I could fall asleep listening to her, but in a good way. :) What a classy woman and what an excellent clip. I remember the first episode airing when I was a kid and I've loved the show ever since.

    1. No, I don't cover DR. WHO on this site. I've explained my reasoning in previous posts.

  3. Interesting artifacts indeed! I don't think I've ever seen anything like that before (i.e., an intro to a new series). I like how the little stage Landau and Bain were sitting on looked like the Main Mission building...

  4. I don't know about the rest of you but I'm still hoping that we get a Blu-ray release of the second season even though, as more time passes, it looks less and less likely.

  5. Thanks again for all you do Chris. This clip was cool.

  6. Three posts (including the Space Raiders post) in a little over a week- cool!
