    Space 1999 was an unusual show, in that almost nothing about it should have worked - the H-bomb disaster causing an interstellar Moon, the humanoid and telepathic aliens, the soap-opera, the fashion - but it did have some of the best spacecraft models seen in any film or series, before or since.

    I seem to recall George Lucas saying that it was the model work on Space 1999 that was one of the reasons he shot the Star Wars movies here.
    Gerry Anderson's shows really were a showcase for the best special effects talent.

    Plus really good use of utter silence to ratchet up tension.
