(2018): A further note on the blurays regarding soundtrack: As George Lucas said, a film's sound/sound design is 80% of the viewing experience. If you set your Receiver to DTS to play the sound of these blurays through the DTS decoder, you will get the best possible sound. The DTS sound is really a VAST improvement over the mono track or anything in standard Dolby as DTS has a higher dynamic range/sampling rate (if you can set your player or Receiver's audio sample rate to 96k, do so). In fact, the DTS track may be a bit too muscular (those MiniMoke Shado Transport vehicles have much more "weight" in the soundtrack now; the SHADO Mobiles will literally rock your house if you are using a sub or two. A couple of other of examples of the improved sound here: the Main Titles - Barry Gray's exciting theme has excellent dynamic range, is very powerful in the bass-end and, frankly, kicks arse on these blurays; it's great to hear this fast-paced-action theme in such a strong presentation. A couple of episode-specific, improved sound examples from one of the best UFO episodes, "Timelash": towards the beginning of this episode, notice when the UFO attacks Straker and Col Lake in Straker's car, and at one point flies overhead off screen toward camera and, during this, the sound pans with the UFO to the back surrounds (if you have them and your system is set to DTS Neo 6.1 or a 7.1 setting) and it really is like the UFO has just flown overhead over you - this gives a more immersive experience to viewing these episodes and is like watching a feature film. Also, the chase scene with the SHADO Minimokes, Straker and Lake pursuing Patrick Allen around Pinewood - good panning effects following the action and use of back surrounds and some good low end presence for the vehicles. In short, Network has put some effort and thought into doing the surround soundtrack. Now, the explosions, a highlight of any Anderson production, are stand out - they are BOND FILM style explosions that finally have powerful sound to match Derek Meddings' superb spfx shots. The UFO exploding towards the very end of Timelash will almost rock the house with a subwoofer connected and may alarm close-by neighbors :). Again, this equates to a more immersive, feature-film like viewing experience watching these episodes. DTS is the way to play/hear these discs. So, not only see these episodes again for the first time in the new format, but hear them as well for the first time in DTS. UFO has a bit more muscle now in the sound dept. which is entirely appropriate for what is, essentially, an action-based/SF war series.
Most people who buy this box set will know the show very well so i will concentrate on the quality.
The crispness and clarity is remarkable, the old dvds were of a high standard, this goes well beyond with an option to have a 5.1 sound track or the original mono.
Extras are a plenty with what must be every photo ever taken from each episode, this includes behind the scenes.
Interviews with Wanda Ventham, Aysha, Jane Merrow and Matt Zimmerman are interesting.
It also comes with a book which goes into great detail on the series, the only minus point i can say is that the discs are a little difficult to remove from their packaging.
If you were pleased with the release of Space 1999 by network then you will love this item, network have once again pulled out all the stops.
Now all we need is Captain Scarlet, Stingray, and maybe an upscaling of Space Prescint?.
