Trivia: A for Andromeda

  • Backed by the Pentagon: The British army provided a pursuit launch, a helicopter and a military base for various shots.
  • Hey, It's That Girl!: Julie Christie would go on to fame in Doctor Zhivago (1965).
  • Missing Episode: Most of "A for Andromeda", as episodes weren't taped by the BBC in those days. Averted with the sequel.
  • The Other Marty: Director Michael Hayes advised the BBC to sign Julie Christie up for the sequel before she became a big star; he was ignored and the role had to be recast for "Breakthrough".
