This is absolutely 1st class. The picture and sound quality will astonish you. The work that Network have done in terms of restoration and remastering is amazing. SPACE:1999 remains one of the most controversial science fiction/fantasy series ever created... & I love it :-) I can only hope that Network decide to release Year 2 and take the same amount of care over the restoration process that they have with Year 1 (you never know, we might even get to own "Message From Moonbase Alpha" - the definitive ending to the Alphan's long journey - & very moving it is too). Buy this set, the presentation is laveish and the series itself contains some of the most beautiful and thought provoking episodes of the series. Highlights include: "Breakaway" (surely the most involving, stunning TV Series pilot ever filmed?), "Another Time, Another Place", "The Guardian of Piri", "Collision Cource", "War Games" and the mind booglingly scary and atmospheric "Dragon's Domain". Even today, this is ground-breaking television on every level as the writers and actors go against every expectation and break every rule to create a series that truly stands on it's own.
