In a lead lined vault, eighty feet beneath a working film studio in the suburbs of London is SHADO, Supreme Headquarters Alien Defence Organization. Classified above Top Secret and answering to only a special commission of the United Nations Security Council, its top-secret mission is to defend an otherwise defenseless Earth against an invasion of technologically superior extraterrestrials.
The aliens' agenda? Unknown, but it appears that they covet Earth's resources — biological resources: living human bodies.
Chartered in 1970, operationally active in 1980, SHADO recruits the best of the best from all nations and possesses the most sophisticated array of military and communications technology ever assembled for a single purpose on Earth.
We celebrate Vladek Sheybal's birthday - March 12, 1923. He would have been 91 years old.
The SHADO Library and Archives is dedicated to the science fiction television series U.F.O., produced by Gerry Anderson and Sylvia Anderson, and starring Ed Bishop, George Sewell, Michael Billington, and Wanda Ventham.
