The three original and groundbreaking 1950s BBC television series, one of the very first regular sci-fi programmes on British television. In the first series, Reginald Tate plays Professor Bernard Quatermass, head of the British Rocket Group, an experimental research body. Awaiting the return of the first manned flight into space, Quatermass sees the rocket crash miles off course with two of its three-man crew having disappeared. Tests reveal the rocket was attacked, and in a London hospital the surviving crewman is undergoing a terrible metamorphosis. In 'Quatermass II' strange metallic meteorites rain down over Winnerden Flats, an eerie new town in the vicinity of a highly guarded chemical plant. Professor Quatermass (John Robinson) is intrigued to discover that contact with the meteorites causes an unusual infection, and is astonished to find that the chemical plant appears to be modelled after his own design for a moonbase - a design that enables life to thrive in an artificial atmosphere. Quatermass' investigation uncovers a sinister conspiracy that extends from government level to the zombie-like workers who will stop at nothing to protect the plant. In the third series, 'Quatermass and the Pit', Andre Morell stars as Quatermass, whose curiosity is aroused when ancient bones and a strange pod are dug up on a Knightsbridge building site. Closer inspection reveals the pod to be made of an unfeasibly strong material and to contain unidentifiable creatures inside it. Could this discovery begin to explain the string of disturbing events that have taken place in the area over the centuries, as well as the wave of sinister occurences that are now engulfing the entire city? A radical and controversial series at the time, 'Quatermass' developed many visual techniques that greatly influenced later BBC series like 'Doctor Who.' Includes the two surviving episodes of series one, as well as the complete six episodes of series two and three.
A three-disc set of the classic horror stories. In The Quatermass Experiment Professor Bernard Quatermass, Director General of the British Experimental Rocket Group, launches the first manned space flight from Australia. A malfunction sends the rocket and its three-man crew thousands of miles off course. When the rocket returns to Earth, it crashes in Wimbledon.
Quatermass II: Several years after the previous serial took place, Professor Quatermass is trying to perfect a dangerously unstable nuclear-powered rocket engine. After a disastrous test firing in Australia, his future son-in-law, Captain John Dillon, draws the Professor's attention to a strange hollow meteorite which interrupted an Army Training exercise.
Quatermass and The Pit: When a skull is found during building works at Knightsbridge, London, the work is halted in order that a full archaeological dig can proceed. The diggers delve deeper, finding more skulls, but also finding some form of tube-like shell made of a ceramic-like material. The Ministry of Defence believe it to be an unexploded bomb, but when they manage to dig inside the shell, dead insect-like creatures are found.

It is a pity that only the first 2 episodes of The Quatermass Experiment are extant. However, Quatermass II and Quatermass And The Pit are complete. These serials were made with severe financial restrictions, and the effects in Quatermass II reveal this clearly, without detracting from the excitement of hte action.
The producers warn that due to the age of the medium of recording, picture quality may vary. Indeed it does, but Quatermass II is watchable without too much distraction from the scratches and fading at the margins, and Quatermass And The Pit is fine. Sound quality is very good, and therer are English subtitles. The set comes with a very good explanatiry booklet.
Three different actors played Quatermass;my favourite is Andre Morrell in the last serial, ably supported by Cec Linder as Professor Matthew Roney.
All great stories from a master writer all produced live and comes with comprehensive notes.
first two episodes of "The Quatermass Experiment" were available for inclusion
here, and, for me, this was quite enough. "Quatermass II" is almost equally
plodding and the Hammer film is really a better option.
However, "Quatermass and the Pit" made up for all that had gone before.
A better Professor Quatermass (and cast in general) and a better script.
Each episode is loaded with atmosphere, the special effects are still pretty
good and the whole thing is genuinely creepy. The restoration of video/film
makes it a joy to watch - a real television classic.
