September 13th 1999: A freak explosion on the moon sends Moonbase Alpha, Commander John Koenig (Landau), Dr. Helena Russell (Barbara Bain) and 309 men and women hurtling out of orbit into darkest deep space.
I am hard to impress, but, having viewed the discs, I am literally stunned. The prints are faultless, bursting with a vibrancy unseen since the original transmissions. Colours are solid and natural, and it is now time to burn those shoddy drop out ridden VHS copies that we all bought in the 90's! This is Space 1999 as it should be seen.
Not even the BBC's remastered prints can hold a candle to these newly refurbished copies - which could have been filmed last week, let alone over a quarter of a century ago!
Obvious love and attention has gone into all three volumes and whilst brief the extras are worth a look too. Be prepared for nifty animated menus and a fantastic "this disc" parody of the "this episode" title cards.
If I could I would give these discs - Carlton's best yet - six stars!Buy these discs immediately!
Some episodes may now seem a bit dated, but this does not render things less fascinating.
