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.

Eagerly anticipated, this lavish new release presents all 26 episodes of UFO in high definition, looking better than ever before and accompanied by a wealth of special features including:

  • From Earth to the Moon: brand new feature-length documentary with interviews, archive video, audio and stills – many of which have never been seen or heard before.
  • The Women of UFO: new documentary discussing the improving sexual equality depicted in the series and the role of science fiction in striving for that change.
  • Identified: SHADO New Recruits Briefing: a newly created SHADO briefing film narrated by Matt Zimmerman.
  • Exclusive 600 page book on the making of the series by archive television historian Andrew Pixley.
  • Dolby 5.1 audio mix as well as existing as-transmitted mono audio.
  • Film material, including textless episode title backgrounds, textless end titles, stock footage, TV spots, extra footage for Identified and Exposed, unused footage from Timelash and The Long Sleep, Italian trailers.
  • Audio commentaries: Identified with Gerry Anderson and Sub-Smash with Ed Bishop.
