In 1990 the short-lived Galaxy Channel (one of the first satellite channels in the UK) started to air a sci-fi soap-opera called Jupiter Moon. Set on a space habitat in orbit of Jupiter’s moon Callisto, the show would play out three times a week for 8 months before being quietly taken off the airwaves.
I didn’t get to watch the show regularly but I did have a friend who watched and I recall catching a few episodes at the time and thinking how ‘cool’ the title font was!
Browsing around Youtube, there are a few clips from the show, but it is this brief ‘making of’ that offers the best insight into the lives of the crew of the spaceship Ilea.
You can learn more about the show at Video Vista.
