Some familiar names.... Trevor Bannister for a start.

It all seems a bit QUATERMASSY on first glance, perhaps trying to recreate the success of those shows?


Bet the BBC or whoever has lost most of it, of course.....

Sadly, I have already found a reference to it as a "partially missing" show.

All of OBJECT Z exists.

Only the sixth and final episode of OBJECT Z RETURNS exists, however. ("The Big Freeze")
