|UFO (1970) concept art by Derek Meddings|
Every Friday I try to feature artwork from a classic of science fiction cinema or television. This week's "Flashback Friday" post is on the television show UFO (1970).
UFO is a 1970 British television science fiction series about an alien invasion of Earth, created by Gerry Anderson and Sylvia Anderson with Reg Hill. It aired in the UK, Canada and in US syndication over the next two years. UFO only lasted one season, but aired 26 episodes thanks to the British TV schedule. Gerry Anderson was famous for making several successful children's science fiction series using marionettes (or "Supermarionation" as he called them), including Supercar, Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons. But, this one was the Andersons' first fully live-action TV series. Three men produced some wonderful artwork for the film that I wanted to share today.
