For UK fans of a certain generation, their first exposure to Night of the Comet was thanks to the BBC2 series, Moviedrome. Each week, director Alex Cox (Repo Man) would introduce a cult film before screening it. Starting in 1988, the original series ran on Sunday nights every summer through to 1994. At 11.45pm on 9 July 1989, the feature was Night of the Comet. Thanks to YouTube user Jim Lynn, you can now watch the original Alex Cox introduction from that show.
