Description

A for Andromeda and its sequel The Andromeda Breakthrough were the sci-fi sensations of the 1960s. Their influence can still be seen today in films as dissimilar as Contact and Species.

A For Andromeda - The year is 1970. A team of scientists decode a mysterious transmission from the Andromeda galaxy and discover that it provides instructions to build a computer more powerful than ever conceived of on earth. When constructed, the computer issues biological information to create new life - resulting in a girl called Andromeda. But who is this creature? And what has she been created to do?

The Andromeda Breakthrough - Andromeda finds herself in captivity, snatched by a global conglomerate backing an unstable Middle Eastern country, as violent weather ravages the Earth. Is it too late to discover the real force and meaning of the messages from a far off world?

Of the original, long-lost A for Andromeda, one complete episode (ep 6) has been recovered, and includes a commentary with actor Peter Halliday and Producer Michael Hayes. All existing footage from the other episodes is included on this three disc set, plus a fill run of telesnap images to fill in the gaps with accompanying text narrative. PDFs of the scripts for A for Adnromeda are also included along with items from Radio Times magazine, and an extensive photo-gallery with music, a documentary reuniting the original cast and crew, and the entire 6 episodes of The Andromeda Breakthrough. Also included is a 32 page Collector's booklet and a digitally restored episode 'The Face of the Tiger', which has never been seen since its original broadcast.
