    Does anyone remember if this show started off in Black and White, like Lost in Space? I know the show had color episodes, but I can't remember if the first episodes were in Black and White.

    No, I am almost certain that all of the episodes were shown in color. I believe Lost in Space debuted about 3 or 4 years earlier than Land of the Giants.

    They were all in color just like "The Time Tunnel".

    As far as I can recall, this show was filmed entirely in color.

    They reran them on Channel 4 in the UK back in the 80s and the first Season was in Black and white (I still have the tapes!) - which made the dayglo colours of their costumes in the second season quite surprising (and blinding) - say it with me "Crush! Kill! Destroy!" I loved that show. I was only 11 when it came out in the UK and it was my favourite programme. Rush home from school - sit down with my Gran, cup of tea, piece of cake and Lost In Space. Loved it.

    Sorry- misread the post. Land of the Giants was def all in colour! Got a bit carried away with the Lost In Space nostalgia there......

    All episodes were filmed completely in colour... Show started in 1968, when most, if not all shows were filmed/taped in colour.
