In the three decades since the first SF film produced for television--1968's Shadow on the Land--nearly 600 films initially released to television have had science fiction, fantasy, or horror themes. Featuring superheroes, monsters, time travel, and magic, these films range from the phenomenal to the forgettable, from low-budget to blockbuster. Information on all such American releases from 1968 through 1998 is collected here. Each entry includes cast and credits, a plot synopsis, qualitative commentary, and notes of interest on aspects of the film. Appendices provide a list of other films that include some science fiction, horror, or fantasy elements; a film chronology; and a guide to alternate titles.
Having a sports car business sounds like the ultimate dream and two passionate young Mexicans have made it come true, writes Jude Webber in Querétaro . Sleek, speedy and sophisticated, high performance cars are a far cry from solar-powered... “We never thought we couldn’t do it. We thought it was weird people didn’t believe in us,” says Guillermo, 34. That was eight years ago: the brothers were fresh out of college and no one knew they had grown up watching their father design,... “When one door opens, another, bigger one does too,” says Guillermo. The Vuhl 05 launched at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK in 2013. “You wouldn’t bet on two 30-something brothers from Mexico City to create something so dynamically sophisticated at the first attempt but, with a little help from their... “The Vuhl 05 is a car of unexpected maturity. The cavernous warehouse on an industrial park devoted to the aerospace industry in the central city of Querétaro looks nothing like an assembly line. Although 51 per cent of components are Mexican, the cars are truly international. The brothers contracted Esiste, the Italian design house that works with Lamborghini, Maserati, Alfa Romeo and Audi, for the suave looks. and 42 per cent of components are from the UK and other suppliers come from the US and Europe. Initially assembly was in Montreal, Canada, but is now done in Mexico, and Vuhl (“vehicles of ultra-light weight and high performance”) is about to move to a bigger plant. The 80kg chassis is aerospace-grade aluminium — parts are not welded but glued, like on planes, to be light and flexible. The bodywork weighs 35kg. All told, the car clocks in at 695kg — less than a Smart car and half the weight of a Volkswagen Golf. They are unabashedly playthings for aficionados — track-day cars with no windscreen or doors — but they can be driven on the roads and a helmet, while useful, is not essential. So far, 25 cars have been sold to clients in Mexico, the United Arab Emirates and the UK, but only 10 have been delivered. It takes time, in part because clients are given plenty of chance to customise their £60,000 car. The Echeverría brothers, who received funding from the Mexican state but have not disclosed investment numbers, already have a dealership in London. They expect to open another in Mexico City within weeks and in the US, most likely either in California or Florida, in the coming months. While Guillermo is the chief executive, Iker, who is 31, is technical director. They are almost accidental entrepreneurs: they want to keep their parallel industrial design business, Etxe, as a financial back-up and they do not see themselves diversifying too much. “This is a life project for us,” says Guillermo. “If someone came and wanted to buy the company, we wouldn’t know what to do. ”. . . Unless she is in mid-flight, Anu Acharya of MapMyGenome can match even the brisk Sir Martin Sorrell of WPP for the rapidity of her email responses, writes Victor... The molecular diagnostics company, based in Hyderabad, India, is her second start-up in the same field and the 43-year-old physicist turned entrepreneur remains a whirlwind of energy. Founded less than three years ago, MapMyGenome is a pioneer in India in the globally rising business of genomics. By analysing a customer’s genome, the company can assess the risks of various diseases and give advice on preventing illness and managing health. The Genomepatri offering, for example, is a saliva-based test to decode DNA and predict genetic risks for more than 100 diseases, traits, inherited conditions and responses to drugs. Other products focus on heart disease, cancer, mental illness and sport — while SlimGene and BeautyGene look at weight and fitness, skin and hair. While there is no doubt that Acharya as chief executive and her 30 employees are focusing on the potentially lucrative market of India’s vast and fast-growing middle class, she says there is a deeper motivation for genetic analysis in a country of...
