any old gits like me out there might remember a 1960's live action sci-fi show by Gerry Anderson called UFO .... ( I watched re-runs in the 80's - I'm not THAT old ).
it tells the story of an underfunded international covert paramilitary org set up to fight a barely understood alien threat; using secret bases around the world (and one on the moon) with both air interceptions and ground forces, and backed by science teams back at their main subterranean base.
Does that general plotline sound vaguely familiar to anyone here?
If you've not seen it I recommend you look it up, it's equal parts cheesy 60's future kitch (purple wigs and silver catsuits a-go-go!), and grim gritty sci-fi drama..
but the real news is that there is a big screen remake in the pipeline.

That is awesome. I like the old TV show and it did supposedly inspire X-Com.
