The first part (instalment 1 of 5) of the movie has been telecasted tonight Aug 16, 2004 on RAI 3. I saw it in the Italian language (which I know perfectly). The story is very interesting and the movie is typically '70 sci-fi style. It reminded me a bit the UFO series. About the actors job: in my opinion the actors Giampiero Albertini (Gen. Vandenberg) is excellent here, as ever. And also the beautiful Paola Pitagora (Judy Adamson) which is not one of the bigger stars in Italy did a fine Job. For the rest, recitation is sometime too much theatre-like and scenography could be better but both are excellent for the times and quite good also nowadays. The original book (by scientists Fred Hoyle and his collaborator John Elliot) was published in 1962. In Italy the book was edited in 1965. In 1971 RAI started the production. The first part was telecasted on January, 4, 1972 with a mysterious writing: "This story take place in England... the next year". Music was written by Mario Migliardi.
