From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Space Force was a BBC Radio science fiction serial, broadcast in the mid-1980s.

Written by Charles Chilton, it was originally intended to be a sequel to his Journey into Space series (broadcast in the 1950s), using the cast who'd just made a one-off revival of that series (The Return from Mars); while this idea was dropped late in the day, the four characters are nevertheless essentially the same as those from the earlier series, albeit with different names.

A second series, known as Space Force 2, featured the same main characters, once again played by Barry Foster, Nigel Stock, Nicky Henson, and Tony Osoba.

Within both series, "Space Force" is the name of the team's spaceship, rather than the name of an organisation.

First series

The episodes of the first series, broadcast in 1984, were:

  1. "The Voice from Nowhere"
  2. "Towards the Unknown"
  3. "The Silver Strangers"
  4. "The Time Ship"
  5. "Threshold of the Stars"
  6. "Marooned in Space"

Second series

The episodes of the second series, broadcast in 1985, were:

  1. "The Return of the Sun God"
  2. "The Red Planet"
  3. "The Great Martian Pyramid"
  4. "A Test of Endurance"
  5. "Living with Death"
  6. "Unto Death and Beyond"


Both the first and second series reused commercially-available incidental music by Jerry Goldsmith. Cues from Logan's Run, Outland, and Capricorn One can be heard in series one, while music from Star Trek: The Motion Picture and Alien can be heard in series two.
