UFO was a 1970s British television science fiction series about an alien invasion of Earth, created by Gerry Anderson and Sylvia Anderson with Reg Hill and produced by the Andersons and Lew Grade’s Century 21 Productions for Grade’s ITC Entertainment company.

The show’s basic premise is that in the near future – a fictional version of 1980 Earth is being visited and attacked by aliens from a dying planet and humans are being covertly harvested for their organs by the aliens. The show’s main cast of characters are members of a secret, high-technology international agency called SHADO (an acronym for Supreme Headquarters, Alien Defence Organisation) established to defend Earth and humanity against the mysterious aliens and learn more about them.
