Space:1999 cut scenes

In light of the recent audio discovery of lost scenes, I just want to bring attention to the fact that there is also photographic evidence of scenes that have not made it to screen.

I will post in this thread what I find. Bear in mind that some pictures may be staged promotional shots, but I'm selecting ones that look natural and candid.

From Breakaway, when we cut to this scene it is Bob Mathias playing with the pads on Koenig's head with Helena watching.

Earthbound - When we see Parks in Medical (the only time in his PJ's), he is in bed unconscious and it is a computer bank behind him.

Mission of the Darians - after Bill Lowry is hit over the head and knocked out, the scene changes - we do not see Helena and the female mute being rounded up.

End of Eternity - I think this picture may have brainwashed me over the years, I seem to remember the scene as a kid but Balor does not in fact hold the guard over his head with only one arm (maybe a promotional shot)

Matter of Life and Death - Helena does not wear the white overcoat in this episode

War Games - we don't see this scene where Helena and staff are attending to the casulties of the first Alien attack. The scenes starts during the 2nd attack as the ceiling falls in.

Ring Around the Moon has several photos showing the Alphans clambering over the rocky terrain. In the episode we only see them moving along the studio floor.

Matter of Life and Death? Perhaps this still came from something between actual takes, since there doesn't seem to be any reason to have Parks awake in the actual story. All the same, it's a nice shot for the actor who had remarkably little to do in that episode.

All of these shots are very cool, actually. I particularly like the War Games shot in Medical Center.

There's a pic of Koenig lying in a gory pool of blood from End of Eternity floating around. The apparent aftermath of the model airplane attack. I think that scene was actually filmed... why would a staged/publicity photo be that gory? Especially from the era it was filmed.

innovative programmes will always push the bounderies - and Space:1999 did this. The scene was shot - recreated at space:2099 website here:

http://www.space2099.tv/video/video_07.htm

It would have been the TV censors that chopped it, not ITC, as some stations did broadcast some of the sequence.

the picture would have been released for publication but unlike Mateo's Troubled Spirit, was not targeted toward kids in a sweet cigarette box so wasn't withdrawn.
There are 13 of these blood pictures on the Blu-ray disks.

Ring Around the Moon - Koenig goes as far as drawing the two smalest circles with the joining line then walks away. This picture shows he carried on to draw a smiling face (Morse looks bemused). Not a missing scene but fun on set.

Another Time Another Place - in this scene only 4 Alphans emerge from the building (Bergman follows later). This photo shows 6 people.
From this angle it is interesting to see through the doorway that the building is only a facade.

Great picture - thanks for sharing. Victor certainly does not look amused.

Alpha Child - the only time we see Jackie in his PJ's is sat on the chair with the Bob Mathias hearing test (tray clap!), we don't see him getting tucked into bed.
