It would be if the opening sequence on the DVD included the credits.

I'd love to see Crossroads to Crime (is it available on DVD anywhere)

Liked Journey to the Far side of the Sun simply because it was the precursor to UFO,and had the most superb Derek Meddings Explosive Ending.UFO also Anderson's summit as far as I am concerned.

Thunderbird Six seems to tick all the right nostalgic boxes for me.More in keeping with the TV Series

It is available on DVD from Network, on region 2 (Europe), but be warned, if you are expecting an Ed Wood-style incompetent production, you will be disappointed. Although it does have its unintentionally funny moments, it is a very competent production, on a very low budget, of a VERY mediocre script.

Really does'nt matter.I like these old B/W 50/60's films for their sense of periodand locations.Also the mere fact that it's British,and associated with Gerry Anderson is enough for me.
I prefer these sorts of films any day compared to the synthetic tripe they call the Cinema today.

Many thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

And the other thing I remember was that everything on the second Earth was a mirror opposite.

The fate of both astronaut's was unfortunate, I was hoping for a different outcome for Colonel Glenn Ross
Yes, I agree.

The biggest kit was Steve Platts. (STINGRAY48442). It's not a bad Dove kit but needs a ton of tlc.
Indeed. It was a great aircraft. There should have been a kit (Or several).
