Precision Video/ Channel 5 Video/ Polygram Video

UK

The 4 ITC "movies" were released originally by Precision Video (with fold out sleeve 30 x 19 cm, illustrated with b/w photos) in VHS, Beta and, for 1 title, Video 2000, formats.

The titles were re-released by Channel 5 Video in VHS format only. Both companies used the ITC film posters for cover art. Polygram took over Channel 5 in 1991, and began reissuing titles in new packaging in 1992. This packaging featured the series logo ("Space 1999", despite the 2100 date given in the narration) and a single photograph, with a coloured background with vague designs of the Moon and an atom symbol. The reverse featured a larger atom symbol with two small photos.
