    Awesome. Can’t wait to listen to it. There’s very little about this show on the web. Next maybe you’ll consider doing Jonny Quest šŸ˜‰

    @John Hey, good call there, friend. A Jonny Quest podcast, I’d like to hear that! šŸ™‚

    (???) This is terrific, thank you…!
    Promoting this on Twitter to our die-hard UFO/alien enthusiasts.

    Thanks for this one!
    A very rarely discussed show. I’ll join the call for a DVD set to come out.
    We watched this show every week in our house, being insatiable UFO buffs.
    Here in Eastern Canada, the show was indeed called Project UFO (found a 1978 listing in an old newspaper) but I do recall some title confusion about the similarity with the Project Blue Book inspiration.
    Maybe some non-TV Guide PR used the alternate in some of the many UFO mags at the time.

    Thanks IQXS. It reall was a great show that people need to remember.

    @AAS I have yet to find a good explanation for the confusion, but with stuff like this I am willing to give people the benefit of the doubt on their memories.

    Wow! Thanks for talking about this. I didn’t know it existed and I enjoy Dragnet. Any chance of doing the Gary Anderson UFO show?

  8. The Retroist

    When I put out this show, I got a bunch of emails from people asking about the Anderson show. So now it is in the queue.

    Loved the “Project UFO” podcast. When I found out you were covering this show, the theme from season 1 immediately popped into my head. It’s amazing how something like music from a 30 year old tv show can stick with you! Hope you do get around to doing Gerry Anderson’s “UFO”…and maybe Space:1999? Season 1 of that series just came out on Blu-Ray and it looks fantastic. Keep up the great work!

    Gonna have to add my voice to the minority report as well. I remember seeing Project Bluebook as the the title on the screen, or maybe just the first text that was shown in the opening sequence.
