UFO was ace.
They've been broadcasting episodes on Forces TV (channel 181 on sky), I've just checked and there's one on tonight at 11PM.
It wasn't but thanks to Thunderbirds etc, it got treated almost like one. Networks tended to put it out at odd times because they didn't quite know how to treat it.
BTW, some pre-production was started on 'UFO 2' a proposed sequel but it fell through. Interestingly, some production designs were kept going and morphed into Space 1999 when Anderson got a deal for a new series. I have a soft spot for UFO as I was 6 when it was originally on and vaguely remember it. I used to have the Dinky toys too.

Did you have the green truck where the roof flicked over to reveal a gun, spring loaded that you could fire matchsticks with it?

I'm almost certain we've been here before in these very pages but those of us of a certain age will have fond memories:
