27 September 2016

The first live-action television series from the legendary creators of Stingray and Thunderbirds, Gerry and Sylvia Anderson, UFO is to be released on Blu-ray-ray in a new HD restoration in November, courtesy of Network Distributing.

1980. After ten years development in top secrecy, SHADO – Supreme Headquarters Alien Defence Organisation – goes live. Its aim: to combat the threat of an alien invasion from a dying race who abduct humans to repair their own decaying bodies. SHADO's dedicated operatives fight a secret war against Earth's terrifying new menace: on land, sea, air – and in space!

The series remains a benchmark sci-fi production, featuring mature storylines and ground-breaking special effects. Long-awaited on Blu-ray in the UK, it is presented here with original mono or 5.1 soundtracks, alongside a wealth of new special features.
