The Catacombs Earthbound
SFX footage

SFX footage from the World Backgrounds library. The library contains many alternative takes and longer shots (sometimes including clapperboards). A few examples have appeared on the Network DVDs bonus disc, but many have never been seen. Episode shots are outlined in red, all other shots from the library.

Ship above lunar surface (about to land, but model is static here, swinging slightly on wires which are occasionally visible). (Also shown: the landing as seen in the episode).

(HD) Ship lands on lunar surface. The ship starts suspended top right, then swings to the left, before swinging completely out of frame left. It swings back into frame, jets firing, spinning around as it lands. The smoke slowly clears.

Ship lands on launch pad. Model starts on right of frane, static and swinging slightly on wires. It swings to the left, firing rockets, then to right again, then to the centre, then lands. 52 seconds, for the first 13 seconds static.

Landing as seen in the episode: on the Big Screen (apart from touchdown), from a different angle (may be reversed). The ship doesn't swing over the pad quite as much.
