Orion 7

This is a little tribute to science fiction of the 60s. I really love the look of these old space movies! This image is a composition of scans of the original-soundtrack LP cover of the german television series from the 60s called "Raumpatrouille" (Space Patrol). I borrowed the LP from my parents some years ago. ;)


"Space Patrol", an utopian fairy-tale, was one of the biggest adventures in the history of German television. Incorporating a large-scale technical set-up, it was filmed at the Bavaria Atelier Gesellschaft in Munich-Geiselgasteig, in co-production with the French television station (ORTF). In the fall of 1966 the seven series of "The Fantastic Adventures Of The Space Ship Orion" were transmitted in Germany and France, after which the program was shown in many countries all over the world.
