Captain Scarlet goes Blu-ray for 50th anniversary

Gerry Anderson’s hit Supermarionation series is restored in full HD.

As part of the 50th anniversary of Gerry Anderson’s hit series Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons, Network has announced that the Supermarionation series will be released in full 1080p Blu-ray this November.

Beginning with Volume 1 of 4, each 25-minute episode has been digitally remastered in HD from the original 35mm film elements and is presented in its original 4:3 aspect ratio. The first volume is also packaged in a special scarlet-coloured case, featuring the famous artwork of Ron Embleton.

The year is 2068; after a misunderstanding leading to an attack on their Martian city, the Mysterons declare war on the inhabitants of Earth. Ranged against this devastatingly powerful enemy is Spectrum, a worldwide security organisation – its leading operative: Captain Scarlet. Having been captured and replicated by the Mysterons, but breaking free of their control, he now possesses extraordinary powers that make him Spectrum’s most powerful agent in the fight to save humanity…

Following Gerry Anderson’s smash hit series Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons was a huge leap forward in terms of special effects, puppet design and visual style. Lavishly produced with outstanding production values and a big-screen soundtrack from Barry Gray, the series offers a darker, sharper and altogether more sinister set of action adventures which remain as popular today as they were 50 years ago.

Volume 1 includes the episodes The Mysterons, Winged Assassin, Big Ben Strikes Again, Point 783, Manhunt, Operation Time, Renegade Rocket and White as Snow.

Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons Volume 1 will be released on 20th November 2017 and costs £10.00 (including VAT). Volume 1 of 4 is available for pre-order now from Network at


In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons, Big Finish are also releasing a lavish seven-CD deluxe box set of exclusive audio content. Click here for more details.
