It Was a Thing on TV Twin Pack: Episodes 155 & 156 - K-9 and Company/1978 Science Fiction Film Awards

This week It Was a Thing on TV is taking a trip to Saturn in the TARDIS because we're going on a Sci-Fi theme because it's lonely out in space.
 
First, we continue Pilot Month 2021 with a look at K-9 and Company. Doctor Who has had its fair share of successful spinoffs.  One whose pilot aired but didn't get picked up was K-9 and Company in 1981 at the Beeb.  It looked good and they brought back Elizabeth Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith for it, but something happened...
 
Then, with the Oscars having passed we look at an award show from years past. 1977 was a big year in science fiction movies, thanks to two little movies called Star Wars and Close Encounters of the Third Kind.  Those films might have been the big winners that night, but The 1978 Science Fiction Film Awards also gave us one of the most memorable performances in history.
 
Remember to follow us on our socials over @ItWasAThingOnTV and for any show suggestions or feedback send them to itwasathingontv@gmail.com
 
And I think it's gonna be a long, long time.

This Week on It Was a Thing on TV, the gang looks at an unsold pilot with a familiar name in the game show world along with looking at a TV movie about the Titanic.
 
First, does this remind you of anything?  Does this remind you of many things?  Mark Goodson's last original format, TKO was a little bit of a number of shows, from Jeopardy! to Blockbusters to Couch Potatoes.
 
Then, with the anniversary of it's sinking having just passed, we take a look at S.O.S. Titanic. A made-for-TV movie that aired on ABC in 1979 which until it's Blu-ray/DVD release last year hadn't been seen by many in it's original broadcast length.
 
It's a star-studded TV movie featuring David Warner, Ian Holm, Helen Mirren, Cloris Leachman, David Janssen and Susan St. James (UH-OH!).
