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 »

As well as a "This Episode" segment, there was originally supposed to be been a "Next Episode" segment as well, just prior to the closing credits. A piece of music was specifically recorded for this "trail" but never used. The idea was dropped prior to transmission as it would tie stations to a fixed broadcast order - unless they were prepared to swap them around or cut them off completely. See more »
By the time I found out about his show, it was very hard to find. It would be broadcast somewhere in the wee hours of the night (around 2 to 5 am). I would check the TV Guide, set my alarm, and go to bed hoping some infomercial wouldn't bump it. Was this a great series? No. What it finely scripted? No. I could answer "No" to a lot more questions... but... I loved this show!! It was goofy & corny, but there was a charm about it, a "heart" that what some might call "better" shows lacked. The aliens and sets were fun and it even had a family in it! And the cherry on top of this sci-fi-sundae; there were all of those great Gerry Anderson models... COOL!!! It was a great way to spend a middle-of-the-night-half-hour! Sci-Fi Channel: GET IT!!!! (please?)
