POLYGRAM / CHANNEL 5 OLD EDITION

Presented in 8 volumes, from ITC Intertainment, there are three sets of Captain Scarlet videos series produced in Pal: one series is marked "Channel 5". The two others are from Polygram . The tapes from the first set are offered for individual sell, while the second is a complete box set, featuring a slightly different art cover than the first, and the spines of all the video form four portraits of some of the series "stars". The three series have the same contain.

Each tape contains 4 episodes, except volume 3, containing 3 episodes, and volume 8, containing 5.

The order of the episodes are not the same as originally presented on TV. The first two volumes are compilation of chosen episodes of the series, to produce a “movie version”, so to speak. Volume 1 compiles the episode of the lunar mission trilogy, plus the episode “Shadow of Fear”. Strangely, it is in Volume 2 that we found the pilot episode, along with its direct follow up, “Winged Assassin”. This volume has been somewhat modified, in regard of the last scenes of the pilot episode , “Winged Assassin” … and particularly “Attack on Cloudbase”. While it was clearly demonstrated in the last scenes of this episode during the TV series that it was indeed all a dream from Symphony Angel, it is not the case here. I, for one, prefer the original TV version of this story..
