ITVX has announced that Space Precinct will stream for the first time in HD on BritBox, available via ITVX Premium, April 13th. All 24 episodes of the remastered live action drama, which first aired in 1994, will be available.

Until now the series, directed by Gerry Anderson, has only ever been shown in standard definition. The series has now been AI-upscaled by ITV Content Services, bringing all its glory to viewers in HD for the first time.

Space Precinct sees a veteran New York cop transfer to a new precinct – the Demeter City Police Department on the planet Altor – as he discovers that a life of crime is not a purely human pursuit.

Ted Shackelford stars as Lieutenant Patrick Brogan, alongside Rob Youngblood and Simone Bendix as fellow officers who try their best to maintain law and order amongst the melting pot of different alien races. The cult series featured many high-profile guest stars, including Idris Elba, Frances Barber, Ray Winstone, Maryam D’Abo, Nickolas Grace and Steven Berkoff.

At the time the series was the most expensive live action show made to date, with several episodes directed by James Bond director John Glen.
