In typical UK MOD bungling style, it was going to have steam catapults, then it wasn't, then some fancy electro-magnetic linear motor catapult, then nothing. Multiply this sort of faffing about for every system aboard and I wonder it hasn't cost ten times its already staggering cost.

$17.8 million seems very reasonable; have they taken inflation into account?
Graphics - trippy Audio - Overwhelming
A distinct improvement on my DVD copy with pin-sharp graphics (though the 'dodgy' artwork in Bulldog scene still grates.) Audio seems over cooked though with alarming surges and stereo image leaping about at times. A colourful, one-off featuring the Fab Four.
Fast food Government
The U.S. government is run by and for big corporations; they will do anything in their considerable power to keep the population hooked on their products.
Amoral and jaw - droppingly ignorant - the tomato is a fruit!
Or even space odyssey . . .
FM / Internet radio - fine; but DAB+?
Is this PURE's attempt to push the UK government into adopting a half-way sensible digital system?
