Moonbase at the BFI

The British Film Institute presents 1967’s Doctor Who adventure The Moonbase (presumably episodes 2 and/or 4) as part of its One Giant Leap season to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the first manned moon landing.

On 20 July 1969, BFI Southbank is collaborating with the Science Museum in hosting a season of documentaries, feature films, television and artworks focusing on the dream and reality of space travel, the Cold War space race, and the American space programme of the 1960s and 1970s

Doctor Who’s presence at the event is heavy – alongside The Moonbase (starring Patrick Troughton as the Doctor, Fraser Hines as Jamie, Anneke Wills as Polly and Michael Craze as Ben) from 1967 is 1973’s Moonbase 3 by then Doctor Who producer and script editor Barry Letts and Terrance Dicks.

It could be argued that the wording on the BFI literature for the season could be misinterpreted to lead fans to assume the BFI have a secret print of the missing episode 3 of The Moonbase – this isn’t the case, but there’s still plenty to enjoy here!
