THURSDAY JULY 23 Channel 039

Few films have infected our collective nightmares as 1979’s cult classic Alien.  This is an in-depth voyage into the sci-fi masterpiece from the visionary filmmakers who created it. One of the most terrifying movies of all time burst onto our screens 40 years ago, inspired by ancient mythology and our universal fears. The untold origins of Ridley Scott’s classic are rooted in Greek and Egyptian mythologies, underground comics and the art of Francis Bacon. Memory reveals a treasure trove of never-before-seen material from the archives of Dan O'Bannon (screenplay) and HR Giger (special effects) - including original story notes, rejected designs and storyboards, exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, and Dan's original 29 page script from 1971, titled Memory.
