Dereck Meddings. Many people do not know that he also made a lot of SFX for the James Bond's movies in the 70ies and 80ies. However Gerry and Silvia Anderson, the UFO creators, changed him for Brian Johnson for Space 1999.
Both series were good, being UFO more dark and, for me, realistic. I hope this new movie, at least, maintain the original music score by Barry Gray, which was excelent.

The link in with UFO's and conspiracy theories is that there is a lot if money to be made from them, as with for example, the murder of President John F Kennedy.

The TV series UFO had a problem, in my view, in that it tried to portray a real life situation but did it by ignoring all the inconveient rules of scientific knowledge, such as full Earth gravity on the Moon, sound effects on the lunar surface and rocket motors incapable of propelling interceptors at the speeds they need to move etc.
Captain Scarlett actually came over as more credible because it was designed to be science fantasy.
