Moonbase 3

Just six episodes were made of Moonbase 3, centred on the Moon in the 21st century, in a European scientific research establishment. Welsh scientist David Caulder (Donald Houston) and his crew found plenty to keep themselves occupied, from technicians going loopy to behemoths. Ralph Bates, Fiona Gaunt and Barry Lowe also starred. The series has a stirring title theme, composed by the great Dudley Simpson. There's no mistaking this as being anything other than a BBC science fiction series, if you know what I mean!
