Not sure how this will be received by the HUKDers out there. But this simply is one of the best Sci Fi series ever made. If you like your Sci Fi, forget the age of these shows and sit back and enjoy the splendour of some top quality TV Sci Fi.

A three-disc set of the classic horror stories. In The Quatermass Experiment Professor Bernard Quatermass, Director General of the British Experimental Rocket Group, launches the first manned space flight from Australia. A malfunction sends the rocket and its three-man crew thousands of miles off course. When the rocket returns to Earth, it crashes in Wimbledon.
Quatermass II: Several years after the previous serial took place, Professor Quatermass is trying to perfect a dangerously unstable nuclear-powered rocket engine. After a disastrous test firing in Australia, his future son-in-law, Captain John Dillon, draws the Professor's attention to a strange hollow meteorite which interrupted an Army Training exercise.

Quatermass and The Pit: When a skull is found during building works at Knightsbridge, London, the work is halted in order that a full archaeological dig can proceed. The diggers delve deeper, finding more skulls, but also finding some form of tube-like shell made of a ceramic-like material. The Ministry of Defence believe it to be an unexploded bomb, but when they manage to dig inside the shell, dead insect-like creatures are found.

Jolly good.:thumbsup:
Job done then:-D
Glad to be of service Joe
Whatever happened to intelligent SF produced by the BBC / ITV. Up till the early 1970's you could guarantee at least one decent SF play or series each year
super hot just ordered them :thumbsup:
Love the original BBC Quatermass, bought it last time it was "on offer" for about £20 so this is an excellent deal:thumbsup:

I remember The Pit scaring the bejaysus out of me when I was a kid.
Oh yes, remember these well.... nearly 50 now but as a kid they used to scaaaare the bejesus out of me even before Dr Who!!!!!

Highly recommended! :-D:-D
Great stuff!

I well remember the cardboard "space suits" clearly coming apart at the seams in one episode! :-D
