WELCOME TO GIANTS LOG
A warm welcome to Giants Log which is a long running society dedicated to preserving the classic television show, Land of the Giants. Established in 1990, Giants Log and the Irwin Allen News Network (IANN) have published and contributed to many newsletters and books with articles, interviews, pictures, events, news, and decades of research. With the emergence of the Internet, over the past 20 years we have been able to share our enthusiasm for, and knowledge and collections on the subject of Irwin Allen and his television and movie masterpieces around the globe almost instantly.
Land of the Giants lives on nearly 50 years after it was first produced with continued broadcasts on both sides of the Atlantic, and DVD releases worldwide. There are fans in every corner of the planet and with them a history of how Irwin Allen brought fun to their screens and inspiration into their lives.
If you would like to help us in our ongoing research and efforts in keeping Land of the Giants on the "map", please do drop us a line. We will be adding more features on this site over the coming weeks, months and years, and appreciate any help you can offer with research, pictures, art, reports and anything else on Land of the Giants.
RODGER E. MAUS
We have learned the very sad news that Emmy award winning and Oscar nominated Art Director and Production Designer Rodger E. Maus, who worked for many of Irwin Allen's productions, passed away last month (16th March 2017) at the age of 84. You only have to browse around our site to see the results of his work, be it the design of the Lost in Space Space Pod or the sub-orbital spaceship, the Spindrift, from Land of the Giants.
We were honoured to meet with Rodger Maus in 1992 in Los Angeles and he was a charming gentleman. Below is a photograph of Rodger reading our Land of the Giants 25th Anniversary Special.
GIANT CHAIR AT THE IDEAL HOME SHOW
If you made a visit to the Ideal Home Show this year, you will have found yourself in the Land of the Giants as you walked past the main entrance. There were several pieces of giant furniture outside the exhibition hall at Olympia so they were obviously catering for giants as well as little people.

LAND OF THE GIANTS RETURNS AGAIN TO THE UK
Land of the Giants returns to the UK Horror Channel on Monday 20th February 2017 at 3pm (Freeview 70, Sky 319, Virgin Media 149). Horror Channel website has yet to be updated with this information.
The Irwin Allen world lost one of its most active guest stars, Francine York, on 6th January 2017. She was a special guest in so many Irwin Allen productions including Lost in Space and Land of the Giants. In the IANN January 2017 archive, we take you down an Irwin Allen memory lane of some of Francine's appearances.
It is with great sadness that we have learned from Celeste Yarnall that Don Marshall (co-pilot Dan Erickson in Land of the Giants) passed away on Sunday 30th October 2016 at Cedars Sinai Hospital at the age of 80. Don has been immensely active at events in recent years and was so enthusiastic about bringing Land of the Giants back to our screens. We are so glad that he was able to attend the 2011 Land of the Giants Commentary recording as that was a very important occasion and reunion in Land of the Giants history. He will be sorely missed by his many, many fans.
