Default "Mad Scientist" Magazine article on 1999

The current issue of "Mad Scientist" magazine features a 4-page article on Space: 1999 written by fan Richard Gladman (of http://cyberschizoid.blogspot.com ).

The issue is #19, Spring 2009, and can be ordered here:

The article is a charming piece written from a personal point of view, and I enjoyed it. There are a couple of mistakes in the text, however.

First, Richard notes that the initial script for Space: 1999 was "The Void Ahead", and that it was written by Gerry & Sylvia Anderson. Of course, the initial script was actually Gerry & Sylvia's "Zero G". The next script was "The Void Ahead", which was written by George Bellak.

Second, he mentions that the series began filming in late 1973 at Elstree Studios... which, of course, should be Pinewood Studios.

But, a couple mistakes aside, it's a worthwhile article with a nostalgic bent to it. Recommended, especially for the very reasonable price of $5.00 US.
