The Catacombs The Troubled Spirit
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.

Moon travels through space. Seen as title shot of episode. Clapperboard is mostly illegible (it appears in the masked area where the Moon will travel), but marks slate 1 take 1, the date looks like December (month 12) 1974. About 35 seconds.

Shot is also seen when Koenig looks out the windows at the start of Space Brain (the 4 seconds before the moon appears), the opening shot of The Infernal Machine, and the shot of the Moon in deep space immediately after the flashback sequence in Dragon's Domain. It's the first shot of The Exiles, Journey To Where and Brian The Brain.
