I think BFI have quite literally copied the front cover of the 1980 book onto the DVD cover. If you look carefully at the "As seen on the BBC" logo, you can just read " A Look"... from the 1980 book. Not good.
It seems the story is now going to appear more less than 3 times on the disc!: Main programme itself •Feature-length presentation (70 mins): exclusive version of Dan, Helen and Peep-peep’s adventures, edited specially for the release •BBC Records LP: film version (55 mins): an exclusive presentation, combining audio from the 1972 LP with footage from the 1980 TV broadcast
A feature on The Boy From Space in the latest (about to go off sale) issue of Infinity magazine: Ray Harryhausen’s Ymir travelled 20 Million Makes to Earth and he’s landed in the pages of Infinity 37 alongside a lot of other great sci-fi and cult TV treats. We look at 50 Years of The Master from Doctor Who, remember the teatime terrors of The Boy From Space, serve up some vintage chat with director Val Guest (Creatures the World Forgot, The Quatermass Xperiment) and remember the great Sid James. There’s also a splendid look back at Tornado comic and the Golden Age of sci-fi and radio. infinitymagazine.co.uk/product/infinity-37-cavegirls-at-war/
