The Catacombs Space Brain
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.

Strange colours and lights. As seen by Wayland and Cousteau, and Kelly during space walk.
