Battlestar Galactica Tele-films promo ads
Here are two examples of print ads promoting the Galactica tele-films. There were several of these tele-movies cut together for syndication; I believe 5 in all, joining two-hour long episodes.
Instead of using the opening credits for the series, a new title card was created with the new title: i.e.: The Curse of the Cylons and Murder in Space placed over stock footage of the fleet flying by, to give it a feature film the feel.
“Experiment in Terra” was the only one that featured new footage. Ironically this was always a two-hour episode as it was originally broadcast as “Experiment in Terra” parts 1 and 2.
