Product description

Product Description

Eerie, unsettling and a benchmark production for children's television in the 1970s, Sky was created by Doctor Who stalwarts Bob Baker and Dave Martin as one of the run of outstanding children's dramas HTV produced in that decade. Filmed in such richly atmospheric locations as Avebury, Glastonbury Tor and Stonehenge, Sky is a mixture of ecological fable, science fantasy and good, old-fashioned peril.

Marc Harrison stars as Sky - an ethereal boy who materialises on an Earth that is as unprepared for him as he is for it. He soon realises that he's been brought to the wrong time and must seek out the Juganet to return to his correct place in reality. With the help of tearaway Arby Vennor, his sister Jane and friend Roy, he must race against time as Nature rejects Sky and the Earth's immune system creates the evil Goodchild, who is out to stop him at all costs...

This is one of those series that should really be left to the era in which it was made, yet its transition onto DVD managed to bring it into the modern era easily. It is far more cerebral than todays Kiddy entertainment, and is certainly not dumbed down, and although a little psychadelic at times, it is an engaging and unusual story. Send the kids to bed and enjoy a time when kids TV was not all bout screaming, bright clothes and monosyllabic words. Highly reccomended.

Other people have already commented on some of the ham acting, the awful music and the simplistic special effects. Once you get past that, you have a story about an alien entity that has come to the earth in the present time (1975 as it was then) by mistake. He is actually supposed to go into the future after the 'chaos and decline' of humanity. He is attacked by all plant life which sees him as a virus whereas his mission is to help people of the future - people who live more simplistic lives, to evolve 'and go amongst the stars'. He explains to Arby and his Sister that mankind is presently doomed and that there will be a time of great upheaval and change. Peoples minds are 'too complex' and they cannot accept simple spiritual truths (he doesn't actually use that phrase but that is what he is implying). It is only the future generations, the generations that come when all technology has long disappeared, who will be able to embrace the ideas that he has come to show them. Therefore he must find the 'Juganet', an energy force that will take him into the future time where he is supposed to be.

AND THIS WAS JUST A CHILDREN'S PROGRAMME!!! But then, as other people have pointed out, in the 1970s, childrens programmes were not dumbed down as they are today! What I find disturbing is that perhaps this could actually happen. At our present rate of consumption (not just fossil fuels but all other raw materials), these commodies could disappear quite rapidly and what will be left? Also, the Sun's Electro Magnetic Frequency, if it becomes too strong, could wipe out all information contained on silicon and the entire informaton technology infrastructure on this planet could be wiped out overnight .....

I saw this when it was first broadcast and was gripped and fascinated. Unfortunately, my parents chose to have a row during the last episode and switched the TV off ! The series was repeated and I watched again only for there to be a power cut when the last episode was due to broadcast so it was with some excitement I got this disc having waited decades to find out what happened. The recording quality is good overall but the two episodes that were recovered from VHS are noticeably lower quality. Do not let this put you off. This series was ground breaking at the time and is still an interesting watch today.

This is one of those gems that I half recalled from my childhood and wanted to watch again to see if it was as freaky as I remembered. IT IS! It's unmistakenly a product of the mid 70s, the image quality is a bit variable due to the original video tape not being too good. For a children's television program it's genuinely disturbing in places, more imaginative and just downright strange than anything modern. If you're less than 40 you might not find this too interesting but if you remember this era it's fascinating to see this again

I learnt of the series in the 1980s and always longed to see it, finally buying and watching it in November 2011. I thoroughly enjoyed it. HTV West really made some wonderful television and good on Network for another extremely worthwhile release.

There is much to endorse this programme particular for its socio-economic messages. It is written by Bob Baker and Dave Martin of Doctor Who fame. Another Doctor Who connection is in episode 7, both Bernard Archard and Peter Copley appear, who later that same year are in the Tom Baker classic, Pyramids of Mars. The young actors, however have done relatively little after "Sky" which is a great shame.

Some of the special effects are exceedingly good and others not so, and the same applies to the music. But for the budget it must have had the production team are incredibly resourceful, and for me "Sky" helps to cement the 1970s as the golden era of British television.

this series creeped me out when I was a child, still creepy if a bit slow. Generally the video from which it was transferred is good with the exception of episode 7 where a couple of times the quality is not the very best but still okay. Different from some of the programmes I have been forced to watch with my nephew were the words 'dumbed down' are easy to put to, Skye is quite intelligent by comparison even with some of the 1970's dodgey special effects.
