Pre-production has begun in earnest on Season Three of the hugely successful television show, SPACE: 1999.

Barry Morse and Prentis Hancock are reprising their roles as Victor Bergman and Paul Morrow. Gerry Anderson is resuming full producer responsibilities and Christopher Penfold is putting the finishing touches to the new season blockbuster opener 'War Cry of Ancross'.

In the model shop at Bray Studios, to feature in the opening story, Chief Visual FX Designer BRIAN JOHNSON is finalising the design and overseeing production of a NEW 44-inch Filming Miniature - the HEAVY WEAPONS COMBAT EAGLE.

THE BRIEF: Required to protect Moonbase Alpha from its most terrifying threat to date, and able to engage with the Ancross Warships, this NEW model is to be HEAVILY ARMED with specialised weaponry and COMBAT ENABLED. It should look 'aggressive' and 'war-like' with a distinctive new livery, yet be visually coherent and distinctly part of the established Eagle fleet...

The Year is 2017.
