UFOcurrently being edited

UFO, pronounced "you-foh", was the Andersons' first totally live-action TV series. The series was not aimed at children, but deliberately sought an older audience with many episodes featured adult themes such as adultery, divorce, and drug use.

In the 1980s human beings are being covertly harvested for their organs by aliens.

The alien race is never given a proper name, either by themselves or by human beings; they are simply referred to as "the aliens."

To defend against the aliens, a secret organisation called SHADO (Supreme Headquarters Alien Defence Organisation) is established.

Predictions

Car telephones (a.k.a. cell phones)

Cordless telephones

Gull-wing doors on automobiles (not widespread in 1969)

Spacecraft launched from an aircraft

Extensive use of computers in day-to-day life, even to the extent of predicting and analyzing human behaviour

Voice print identification systems; also, vocal analysis used to identify individuals in the same way as fingerprints

Spy satellites

UFO also featured episodes dealing with issues that would become topical in later years, such as space junk and the disposal of toxic waste
