When it comes to 1960's science fiction on television you just can't go past the TV series UFO. This series is my second favourite of all time and even by today's standards it still holds up very well even if you can still notice shades of 1960's style and influence.

UFO's basic premise is that in the near future (filmed in 1969-70) - thus a fictional version of the world starting in 1980 (a date indicated in the opening credits) - Earth is being visited and attacked by aliens from a dying planet and humans are being covertly harvested for their organs by the aliens. The show's main cast of characters are members of a secret, high-technology-equipped international agency known as SHADO (Supreme Headquarters Alien Defence Organisation), established to defend Earth and humanity against the mysterious aliens and learn more about them.

I remember well, back in the early 70's when I use to watch this series-around 1971, how unusual it was for a science fiction show, but being very young I really didn't know the difference. The only thing I liked back then were the girls with purple hair, (very unusual) the SHADO interceptors and mobiles (real cool hardware) hunting down the aliens and destroying their spaceships (a very simple design-but deadly).

Now, after all this time, having the DVD of UFO, I was rediscovering the series all over again-what a pleasure; and I must say UFO has set the standard in my mind for British Sci-Fi, hats off the Gerry Anderson and company for producing an excellent series. My only grip is that the show only lasted one season (I want more).

5.0 out of 5 stars Region 1 UFO Megaset - all episodes 27 May 2009
Format:DVD
Excellent TV series. Really enjoy it and can thoroughly recommend it. The Region 1 (NTSC) format DVD's are designed for the USA market but providing you have a multi region DVD player, they will work just fine on a PAL UK televsion.

Also, the Region 1 UFO DVD's are much better value for money than the Region 2 UFO DVD's.

My DVD player was a bargin basement version from Sainsbury's and plays ever type of DVD I've ever used. Just check your DVD player is multi region before purchasing any Region 1 DVD's.

4.0 out of 5 stars A leader of men and god of lesser beings 27 May 2009
Format:DVD
Commander Straker, played by Ed Bishop, may have looked like the alpha male in a pixie commune, but how can you criticise a man who commands the loyalty and respect of some of the hardest men in small screen history? At his right hand was Colonel Alec Freeman, played by the ultimate man of granite George Sewell, (albeit with a blowave) and at his left was Colonel Paul Foster, played by James Bond nearlywas Michael Billington, who was considered for the role of 007 more than any other actor.

So what was it that made men such as these jump to Straker's every want and whim? Well, despite the dodgy barnet, he had charisma by the bucket load, and he was the proverbial tough talking yank in a palour full of servile Brits. Like his sidekicks he had an eye for the ladies. In 'Close Up' he attempts to chat up the posh and impossibly gorgeous Lt. Gay Ellis, an early role for Gabrielle Drake (Nick's sister). On that particular occasion Paul Foster walks in on them and gets a flea in his ear from Straker for his trouble.

For me however, it was his shrewdness and powers of deduction that made him such a credible leader of men. For example in one episode, ironically entitled ESP, a package with 74 stamps is received by a somewhat puzzled secretary. Straker takes one look at the package and declares with a degree of certainty, "Somebody wanted to make sure that got here". With such a gargantuan intellect at the helm of Shado, ET and his mates didn't stand a chance.

On a more serious note, UFO suffered the usual fifties and sixties sci-fi flaw, it predicted too much change in too short a period of time. The series was made around 1970 and set in 1980, yet it foretells a society where even businessmen and heads of intelligence organisations look like the cast of Logan's Run or the Yardbirds circa 1966, and everyone drives electric sports cars to the office, which ascends and descends like an elevator. Still, darn good fun; region 2 would be nice though.
