    The Omega Factor (1979)

    Continuing with our irregular series of TV and movie opening credits. If it has trippy/psychedelic/spooky imagery and/or old analogue electronic music, it is definitely going to be pHinnWeb's thing. These ones are courtesy of MaverickMediaUpload, who also features other mindblowing sci-fi/horror/mystery TV intros from the 1960s and 70s worth checking out. What were these people on?
