AUS: Captain Scarlet And The Mysterons on DVD

Australia’s cult and classic film and television label Via Vision is following up their historic Joe 90 DVD release with Captain Scarlet And The Mysterons.

For AU$59.95, this Complete Series box set includes all 32 episodes across 6 discs, plus special features:

  • Gerry Anderson Commentary on 2 episodes
  • five TV21 audio adventures
  • Character identities
  • ITC publicity
  • Original TV adverts
  • Stills galleries and more

Via Vision’s Joe 90 release was historic as the package is labelled as “Gerry And Sylvia Anderson’s Joe 90″ – the first time since the early 1990s that Sylvia has been credited as such and so prominently for her co-creation. We’re delighted that Sylvia’s contribution to Captain Scarlet is again recognised so prominently on this release.

How long before other licensees catch up?

AUS: History-making Joe 90 DVD from Via Vision

Australia’s cult and classic film and television label Via Vision is releasing Joe 90 on DVD this February. Details are sketchy but the set includes all 30 remastered episodes “plus special features” for AU$59.95.

This release is surely historic as the package is labelled as “Gerry And Sylvia Anderson’s Joe 90″ – possibly the first time that Sylvia has been credited as such and so prominently for her co-creation. Let’s hope other licensees follow suit.

 

 

Christmas TV – not EastEnders again!

At a loss for some quality seasonal television from the broadcasters this Christmas? Why not dig out the TVTimes special that we mailed with FAB last year (and again recently for new members)?

Surround yourself with some treats and a little something to wash it all down, then feast out all day on the very best seasonal Gerry and Sylvia Anderson entertainment (and remember, Stingray A Christmas To Remember is just one of the many programmes now available in high definition).

PS – Obviously, but just in case anyone thought otherwise, in the supplement the 40th Anniversary Quiz closed on 31st January 2021, and Six-Five Special offers were valid until 14th February 2021!

The Animates – can you help?

The Animates, Sylvia Anderson‘s first solo production after leaving Space:1999, has been added to the Productions page of the website.

This series for pre-schoolers was designed to help children learn some simple life lessons, and merchandise included a series of books and episodes on VHS cassette in the 1980s. The series appears to have been largely forgotten following its initial broadcast across much of the ITV network in the late 1970s.

The club has three episodes in its archive and screened one of these at our Special Assignment convention in 2017.

We’re keen to know more about the series – especially episode synopses and broadcast dates. Contact us at fanderson.org.uk@outlook.com if you can help.
