This video is part of an ongoing project to build a retrospective TV archive made exclusively for the LL community on my Retro TV channel at
Buck Rogers ran over a three year period 1979 to 81 but was only two broadcast seasons, mainly due to a writers strike.
Bit of trivia. They used a lot of props in Buck Rogers from Glen A Larson's other show Battlestar Galactica. The Terran starfighters were actually Ralph McQuarrie's first concept design for the Vipers on Galactica.
The narrators voice for this intro is none other than William Conrad. Best known, to me anyway, as the narrator's voice on the Rocky and Bullwinkle show. Though his career was much more comprehensive than that as you can see by the link.
Not many decent copies of this first season intro to be found out there. This copy is the result of a few days work by several people, two friends who are Buck Rogers enthusiasts also helped to restore it to near broadcast quality. Second season intro needs more help than this one but should be a very watchable copy eventually. Enjoy!
