Earth's defence organisation - a secret, high-tech international military agency called SHADO – suspect that a full-blown invasion is being planned.

This one is for the fans of UK sci-fi shows of old. Horror Channel is bringing UFO, a British sci-fi thriller series from 1970 to the channel on October 20th. UFO is the show that would lead to the beloved series Space 1999, starring Martin Landau and Barbara Bain. I will admit that my knowledge of sci-fi from my native land is slim to none but I do know of the latter show.
