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...

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 .....Read more ›
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.
