  • Apologies for Space1999.Net disappearing into a space warp last week- the hard disk died and we had to restore from Brian The Brain's memory bank. It may take a little time for the latest pages from the Catacombs and other sites to find their way out of the mist.

  • Some news about the A&E DVD megaset released on September 24th. The bonus disc with remastered episodes and new extras will only be available from the US shop Best Buy. It will be not available with the megaset purchased from other outlets. It may be available separately from A&E later, but details are not known yet. Almost all the extras on the discs are also available on the UK Carlton and French TF1 sets, but the quality of the remastered episodes, and the new audio commentaries from Sylvia Anderson, Christopher Penfold and Johnny Byrne should be interesting.
