    Default Moon adventure

    Was having a chat with a slightly older work colleague who remembers a space series that didn't run too long but he always watched it on Friday nights.
    He can't remember which channel it was on, and very possibly could have been a regional Scottish TV series. It involved three people living on the moon and could have been broadcast between 1973-1975. He described it as a "bit slow" which probably explains why it didn't run too long! Can anyone help us out?

    Thanks Mr Finchman that sounds like the show my colleague described, I'll put it to him next time I see him.

    Similar to Space 1999 a Gerry Anderson series (one of his very few series not with puppets such as Thunderbirds) starring Martin Landau & Barbara Bain. One other being UFO

    Moonbase 3 was certainly a series that tried for relative realism over the escapism of shows like UFO and Space 1999. I can remember it was promoted quite strongly at the time, but I presume viewing figures must have been disappointing as it didn't last long.

    James Burke was a consultant on Moonbase 3.

    I've not seen it but it sounds interesting.

    It was rather slow compared to the higher-budgeted sci-fi shows of the time, yet I remember watching it and being disappointed when it didn't return for a second series.

    Tyypical of the genre, the artificial gravity is a bit out of the credibility envelope. I agree, somewhat slow.

    On Space 1999 who noticed other than me that in every episode they crashed at least one Eagle shuttle craft? I didn't notice an Eagle manufacturing plant on Moonbase Alpha so where did the replacement Eagles come from? Certainly not Earth as the moon had been blown out of orbit with the earth - Poetic license maybe lol
