Sears’ saucer-invading caper Earth Vs The Flying Saucers, Sears’ rampaging alien bird yarn The Giant Claw, Jack Arnold’s thought-provoking classic The Incredible Shrinking Man and 20 Million Miles To Earth.

Broadcast on Saturday 11 April and Sunday 12 April from 2pm, the season also includes more strange creatures and alien invaders with The Thing From Another World, This Island Earth and Journey To The Far Side Of The Sun.

Full film details in transmission order:

“The event starts with one of the finest movies ever made at 2pm, The Thing From Another World. This chilling thriller is one of the most revered of all sci-fi movies and takes place in a remote Arctic post where a crashed spaceship has been discovered. When the pilot begins to thaw, all hell breaks loose. At 3.45pm we discover a walking nightmare that’s been sitting dormant for quite sometime, It Came From Beneath The Sea. While on a routine mission, Cmdr. Pete Mathews (Kenneth Tobey) runs into trouble when his submarine is nearly sunk by an unknown creature, which is identified as a giant octopus from the nether reaches of Mindanao Deep. The beast has been awakened by nearby nuclear testing and now, radioactive and monstrously huge, the rampaging leviathan is heading toward the North American Pacific Coast.

This Island Earth at 5.20pm follows atomic scientist Dr. Meacham who is chosen to take part in a top-secret research experiment, he quickly discovers that he is really involved in an evil scheme by alien Metalunans to take over Earth. After he and Dr. Adams make their escape, they are whisked away in a flying saucer to Metaluna, where they are blamed for the destruction. Will interstellar negotiation save the day or will the scientists be forced to take part in a treacherous battle to the death? Rounding off day 1 at 7.10pm is the channel premiere of Earth Vs The Flying Saucers. UFOs from a doomed star system invade Earth with plans of world conquest. Surrender is not an option so the human race must fight to the bitter end.”
