Scripts for the 1970s TV series UFO March 25, 2017

This may be of interest to some. Always liked UFO, thought it superior in many ways to Space:1999. Nominally it has been treated like a children’s show but some of the themes, marriage break up, infidelity, etc, were a lot heavier and seems to me to have been more akin to The Avengers and that style of television programming. This is not to say that it was second best to Shakespeare, it had all the usual tropes and issues of its times – including a palpable confusion in relation to gender and sexist depiction of women with some progressive aspects and a fair few not. But there was an edge to it that was welcome, almost refreshing and perhaps pointed to much more dystopian visions that were to come in the 70s.
