The Tomorrow People enthralled a legion of children in the 1970s and is today remembered as one of the most imaginative and popular children s programmes of all time.

Jaunt back to the time when a group of gifted youngsters were Earth s only protection against a group of evil villains and intergalactic terrors.

Nature, fearful that mankind will finally destroy itself, has produced a new species called Homo-Superiors, who have telekinetic abilities, teleportation, a secret base and a futuristic talking computer. This new race, The Tomorrow People are to inherit the Earth and turn it into a planet, where technology will only be used in the cause of peace and where wars and suffering will be unknown.

I started collecting the Tomorrow People DVD's three years ago when the entire series wasn't available yet. It took me two years before I had the wholes series and I wish I could have bought them all at once then for this fabulously low price.
Anyway, I never regretted the money I spent on collecting them all as this series is just great. I was exposed to this series first in 1981 when I lived in the US for half a year. I was then 10 years old and rushed home from school every day to be in time for the day's episode of the Tomorrow People on the children's channel Nickelodeon. Now in my mid-thirties I still find them entertaining.
The whole premise of the series is that a new step in the evolution of man has come into being: The Homo Superior. Endowed with supernatural powers a few youngsters are the first of the new species to appear. From their headquarters in an unused London underground Station and with the help of their speaking computer Tim they protect mankind against its own evils and evils from outer space. The Tomorrow People are telepathic, masters of telekinesis and can transport their bodies through space (jaunting).
The acting doesn't compare to the child actors we have today and the special effects are not that special and probably weren't even for Seventies' standards. But a good story is a good story, both now and then! The DVD quality is about as good as a 30 year old series on DVD gets and for those that can't get enough: watching the episodes with commentaries from the actors will give you unprecedented insights into the making of the Tomorrow People. There are both high points and low points in the series. I would particularly advise watching:
-The Blue and The Green
-A Secret Weapon
-Hitler's Last Secret.

First of all you have to realise that this series was produced in the 70's on a limited budget at a time when modern special effects such as CGI were not available. But what has made the Tomorrow People deservedly popular is that the plots and some of the acting were good enough to shine through those limitations.

Pros: 1. Author Roger Price who also got involved with some of the direction was a superb storyteller 2. Most of the young leads are pretty good including the serious John who nevertheless has a dry wit. Other highlights are the charming Elizabeth and Philip Gilbert, the voice of their computer TIM. Peter-Vaughn Clark as Stephen, while not the most accomplished actor, puts in some cheeky performances which provide light moments among the twisting plots 3. Frequent cliffhangers designed to get viewers to tune into the next episode means the action often has you on the edge of your seat.

Cons: 1. Some of later episodes started to lose their way in terms of plot content and cast changes which contributed the eventual termination of the show in 1979. Also some of the attempts at slapstick comedy in the series fall a little flat in the context of the show 2. Some acting is lamentable especially Kenny and the excitable whiny Carol in the early series 3. Don't watch the show for the special effects.

Having said that, the pros far outweigh the cons. What really made this show explode into a masterpiece was the chemistry between John, Elizabeth, and Stephen. It's generally acknowledged that the episodes with this trio were among the finest. I can recommend such stories as the Blue and the Green and Secret Weapon. These can hold their own against the very best of Star Trek or Dr Who, and this great value compilation is worth getting for those episodes alone. PM

John played by the lead cast member Nicholas Young and his team of telepaths called the Tomorrow People are Earth's only hope for a better and safer future...

I have just seen the first series entitled The Slaves of Jedikiah and I am halfway through The Medusa Strain. In the first episode, we see a new entrant to the team, Stephen who is just starting to 'breakout' with his new found powers and later with the help of the Tomorrow People, he learns the abilities to engage in telepathy, telekinesis and teleportation. These powers and special abilities make advanced people like Stephen, a formidable team to encounter and beat.

The original cast which also stars the empathetic and caring Carol (Sammie Winmill), the inquisitive adventurous and Stephen (Peter Vaughn-Clarke), the ingenious and gifted Kenny (Stephen Salmon) along with the help of their advanced biological computer called Tim (Voice of Philip Gilbert) makes the concept of the Tomorrow People both ahead of its times as well as being thoroughly entertaining.

I first saw episodes of the Tomorrow People when I'd come back home from school and switch on the telly. I still remember the opening credits theme music from then with memories of the clenched fist opening up into an open flat palm-which I now understand signifies humanity's potential ability to open their minds into broader and more enlightened thinking.

Having revisited some of the clips of the episodes from YouTube, I listed the Tomorrow People DVD collection on my favourite's list for quite some time till I recently got the chance to buy it. This series is far better than the 1992 reboot which loses most of the original appeal of the 70's smash hit teen series.
