I've been reading with interest people's lists of classic sci-fi TV, so I'm weighing in with my list of forgotten gems. They're all British children's shows from the seventies that hardly anyone mentions anymore. What forgotten gems can you recommend?
The Boy from Space '71 - This was from the school's Look and Read series. Totally frightening to a six year old, especially as the alien hunting the boy resembled a Doctor Who auton (that had scared the bejesus out me the year previously.)
The Changes - Seventies apocalyptic TV at it's best, it's about a sudden noise emanating from all machinery and technology that causes the population destroy them. Convincing, hard-hitting and my favourite seventies show (apart from the lame ending.)
The Georgian House - ITV time travel yarn from 1976 that had a memorably creepy chanting African wood carving time travel portal.
King of the Castle - Written by Doctor Who's Bob Baker and Dave Martin, it's a surreal tale centred around a lonely boy, transported to a bizarre fantasy world in a malfunctioning lift. Totally bizarre and worth checking out.
Destroy All Robots
