The "Experiment in Terra" telemovie is the only Battlestar Galactica telemovie which actually features new footage. Back in the 1980's, MCA's T.V. distribution took episodes of Battlestar Galatica and made a number of feature length "Telemovies" by (In most cases) re-editing two episodes of the 1978/79 series into one story. These "Telemovies" had been sold around the world for broadcast as stand alone programing. A number of the newly created edits did contain footage that was not part of the original episode versions. But of all the "Telemovie" edits, only one had newly created footage inserted into it, and it's also the only "Telemovie" to use an episode of the original series combined with an episode of Galactica 1980 ("The Return of Starbuck")!
