Old scifi TV serie in the 1970

Space: 1999 is a British science-fiction television series that ran for two seasons and originally aired from 1975 to 1977.

In the opening episode, nuclear waste from Earth, which was stored on the Moon's far side, explodes in a catastrophic accident on 13 September 1999, knocking the Moon out of orbit and sending it, and the 311 inhabitants of Moonbase Alpha, hurtling uncontrollably into space.

The series was the last production by the partnership of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson and was the most expensive series produced for British television up to that time.

Space: 1999 is the last in a long line of science-fiction series that Gerry and Sylvia Anderson produced as a working partnership, beginning with Supercar in the early Sixties and including the famed marionette fantasy series Stingray, Fireball XL5, Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons, Joe 90 and The Secret Service, as well as the live-action alien-invasion drama UFO.

Space: 1999 owes much of the visual design to pre-production work for the never-made second series of UFO, which would have been set primarily on the Moon and featured a more extensive Moonbase.

Space: 1999 drew a great deal of visual inspiration (and technical expertise) from the Stanley Kubrick film 2001: A Space Odyssey. The programme's special effects director Brian Johnson had previously worked on both Thunderbirds (as Brian Johncock) and 2001.

Cosmos 1999 (Space: 1999) est une série télévisée britannique, en 48 épisodes de 47 minutes, créée par Gerry Anderson et Sylvia Anderson et diffusée entre le 4 septembre 1975 et le 7 mai 1978 sur ITV et au Canada sur CBC.

En France, la première saison a été diffusée à partir du 13 décembre 1975 sur TF1 dans l'émission Samedi est à vous. Rediffusée sur Antenne 2. Puis, d’août 1987 à février 1988,

La Cinq rediffuse la série et dans la foulée, programme la deuxième saison restée inédite. Rediffusion intégrale de juillet à août 1989 sur La Cinq. Rediffusion sur M6 dès 1992. Au Québec, la série est présentée à Radio-Canada.
Symboliquement, la chaîne Série Club proposa une "Nuit Cosmos 1999", le 13 septembre 1999, avec une sélection des meilleurs épisodes.

TF1 Vidéo a sorti l’intégrale de la série en DVD (12 disques + 1 disque bonus) en juin 2002. Une nouvelle édition de cette intégrale avec une nouvelle présentation est disponible en DVD depuis octobre 2008.

Excellent that you have shown the culprits for burning the most electric and the mind boggles at the thought what would happen to the seasons and the tides without the moon in place!!!

What you didn't say about SPACE 1999 Was Barbara Bain and Martain Landou starred in it... this married couple was my favorites in MISSION IMPOSSIBLE.... I wated Mission impossible, but I never got into space 1999.... probably because of what night it aired... I'm thinking it aired on friday nights and I did other things than tv back then.
