After a decade of creating pioneering puppet series made for children, Gerry & Sylvia Anderson took their first steps into live-action, with the 1969 feature film Doppelgänger (re-titled outside UK as Journey To The Far Side Of The Sun). This science-fiction film approached its outer space subject matter with a gritty realism, and would set the tone for what was to be their first live-action television series: UFO. This new series took as a starting point the pioneering work of Dr Christiaan N. Barnard, the surgeon who performed the world’s first heart transplant operation. In UFO a dying race of aliens travel across vast distances of space to harvest organs from human beings to help ensure their own survival. To combat this threat the United Nations created SHADO, a top-secret organisation utilising the latest technology available to defend the Earth. To complement the series, the Andersons frequent musical collaborator Barry Gray created a multifaceted score that gave the programme its own musical identity. Elegantly crafted and a firm favourite with Barry Gray fans, the sound of UFO, particularly its ethereal “World Music” closing credits is, quite simply, a joy. Includes a bonus track, Trampoline performed by The Spencer Davis Group from the episode Ordeal.

As is always the case with the Gerry Anderson store, it’s absolutely impossible to sing their praises highly enough. The CD was delivered the day after ordering it, I can only assume Thunderbird 2 had been involved here, and the CD itself is everything a long standing fan of the classic UFO could ever want to own. Top drawer experience from all aspects.
Barry Gray's wonderful score for the for the great GA series UFO, what's not to like?
Really cool c.d. excellent sound quality and nice visual design thank you.
The CD case arrived slightly damaged but the disc and insert were fine. The CD itself is awesome. The outstanding sound of the music brought back so many childhood memories when I used to watch the show as a young boy. Definitely worth the purchase. I highly recommend it.
Outstanding, brought back a lot of very fond memories. Quality sound and mix, informative liner notes. Barry Gray was a very unique, underrated composer so it’s nice his works are getting repackaged for a new generation to discover.
