The series was shot 16:9 on Super 16 film to "future-proof" it, but then entirely post-produced in 4:3 "centre cut-out", effectively chopping off vast chunks from the edges of the image. No widescreen versions, or even letterbox versions, were ever made. See more »

The opening credits include scenes from that week's episode. Gerry Anderson previously used this gimmick in "Thunderbirds" (1964) and "Space: 1999" (1975). See more »
This show was brilliant when I was 10 and still is now I'm 21.
Just started collecting them on DVD, which I was shocked to find available as I thought they stopped making them on VHS.
They should show them again on T.V like they do with other Gerry Anderson shows.
I know the show didn't go down well when it was first shown but to all of us out there who did like it was a godsend, Gerry Anderson did it again as he did with Thunderbirds, Stingray and all his other shows.
For me..... it was the excitement in the show which made me watch it, not only with a good actor for the leading role and other actors to help him along.
I think the show in its heyday was brilliant, but like I said, I was only 10 or 11 so my mind wasn't fully functional I think. But I will always say that Space Precinct is one of the best SCI-FI shows I have seen.
