UFO: The Complete Series [BLU-RAY]

Gerry and Sylvia Anderson’s landmark series UFO returns in a stunning new HD restoration, available exclusively to pre-buy now at networkonair.com for £69.99.

With its outstanding special effects and high quality production values, UFO set a new benchmark for TV science fiction when it first appeared in 1970. Hugely popular across the globe, UFO marked a watershed in the careers of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson, signalling the end of their marionette productions and a move into full-time live-action filming.
