[edit]

A SPACE battle is about to begin in Britain— for television audiences.

The attack will be launched by ITV on the Daleks, Drahvins and Chumblies, who populate the BBC serial "Dr. Who." And the "ammunition" is a new science-fiction series from Hollywood, "Lost in Space."

It will be taken first by most of the regional companies, London I T V is expected to show it later.

Family

In a bid to win audiences from the popular "Dr. Who." ABC-TV—the Northern and Midlands weekend programme contractor—plans to screen its new show at the same time on Saturday evenings.

The hour-long episodes will tell of an American family of the 1990s who board a Spaceship lose their way, and land on a mysterious planet.

They, too, will have a monster to menace them.
