Buck Rogers in the 25th Century: The
Complete Epic Series Region 1 (NTSC)
The Buck Rogers in the 25th Century TV series that aired
from 1979-1981 has finally been released
on DVD. In fact, this marks the first time the series has been
released in its entirety in any format.
Buck Rogers in the 25th Century: The Complete Epic Series has been
released in the United States and Canada in DVD Region 1 (NTSC) format and
is essentially the entire series minus the fact that the television version
of the episode 'Awakening' is not included. The TV version that originally
aired on 9/20/1979 was essentially the theatrical version (which is included
in this DVD set) edited slightly with a few additional scenes. These
scenes were added and others were edited to better help segue-way into the
in the UK
Buck Rogers in the 25th Century:
Season 1 Region 2 (PAL)
Buck Rogers in the 25th Century: Season 1 has been released in the
United Kingdom in DVD Region 2 (PAL) format and is essentially the entire
first season. From what I've been told this is the entire first season minus
the fact that the television version of the episode 'Awakening' is not
in the UK
Buck Rogers in the 25th Century: Season 2 Region 2 (PAL)
Buck Rogers in the 25th Century: Season 2 has been released in the
United Kingdom in DVD Region 2 (PAL) format and is the entire second season.
I've found that Amazon's sites seem to carry the DVDs at the most
reasonable rates on the Internet.
Awakening (TV Version)
"Power Pop/Melodic Rock" Album
Kool Kat Musik
James Deem, your friendly neighborhood Buck-Rogers.com Webmaster,
has just completed an album of 10 original songs. The project was produced
and recorded by Jamie Hoover of The Spongetones.
When asked to describe what kind of music I
write to those who haven't heard it before, I would say it is "power
pop/melodic rock" featuring a lot of vocals, a lot of guitars, and a whole
lot of hooks.
Four of my original songs ("I'm Not over You," "It Stands
to Reason," "The Way She Loves Me," and "I Hear Your Heart Calling") have
been played on various radio stations.

Philip Nowlan, the Creator of Buck Rogers, Collection Published
over Tomorrow: The Collected Science Fiction of Philip Francis Nowlan
If the name Philip Nowlan is not well-known today, it is because
it has been eclipsed by that of his most famous creation, Buck Rogers.
Buck began life as Anthony Rogers, in Nowlan's first published story,
"Armageddon 2419 AD.," and its sequel, "Airlords of Han," quickly became a
phenomenon that popularized science fiction in the first half of the
twentieth century in the same way that Star Trek and Star Wars
popularized it in the second half. But until now, Nowlan's other science
fiction stories have been forgotten in the wake of Buck's immense
popularity. Collected here with the original Anthony Rogers stories are "The
Time Jumpers," "The Onslaught from Venus," "The Prince of Mars Returns," and
"Space Guards," as well as the 1940 radio script "Wings over Tomorrow."

Buster Crabbe: An All-American in Outer Space
Article by Scot D. Ryersson
Larry "Buster" Crabbe was a true 20th Century American icon. An Olympic Gold
Medalist in swimming, and a hero on the silver screen, he wasn't bigger than
life–he was as big as life could be. Although, early in his career, he shared
the role of Tarzan with fellow Olympic hero, Johnny Weissmuller, he was known to
several generations as the personification of both of America's first science
fiction heroes, Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers.
