About a year ago, and after years of reporting on this title, we reported here at The Bits that Shout! Factory had quietly obtained the rights to release Network/ITV’s classic 1970s British TV series Space: 1999 and UFO, produced by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson.
As many of you know, both series were released on DVD here in the States, and on Blu-ray in the UK and elsewhere, but only Season One of Space: 1999 ever appeared here in the States on the HD format.
Well, that changes now. On 7/16, our friends at Shout! Factory will release Space: 1999 – The Complete Series on Blu-ray Disc as 13 disc set including all 48 episodes in production order and special features (which are still TBA). The package will also include a booklet of photos and liner notes. [Read on here...]
Here’s what it looks like...
And here’s the kicker: The first 500 orders on Shout!Factory.com will receive a limited edition 4-inch Space: 1999 Snow Globe, created exclusively for this release, features an Eagle Transporter landing on the Moon.
These episodes are sourced directly from the recent Network/ITV remasters, and so should be of top quality.
And yes, Shout! is working on UFO: The Complete Series too. Stay tuned for news on that.
We’ll add Amazon.com pre-order links as soon as they go live.
