I remember this program fondly due to the fact I was an extra in the production. The episodes of the show were filmed between June/July 1978 and lasted for the better part of a year. I know some people who were extras in all of the episodes of the show, meaning they spent their days dressed in various outfits either sweating or freezing their collective butts off! The weather was extreme, as temperatures would reach over 100 degrees during the summer days, when the production would routinely film for close to 12 hours at a time. However, in early January of 1979, I remember standing in the only sand that wasn't covered by snow in 15° weather. It was SO cold in the winter months in Page, (where the production was filmed) that extras were issued thermal underwear - sometimes two pairs!! You may wonder why or how a person who lives in Maryland was in this production... At the time, I lived in Page, Arizona where they have filmed numerous productions over the years. The Lake Powell region looks very much like the desert of the Middle East with lots of sand and rock formations. I think all of the Planet of the Apes movies have been filmed here, as well.
