Customer Review

on 12 February 2014
I was 10 years of age when the original "Tomorrow People" debuted on ITV in 1973. Although the series had its budget limitations as well as the technological limitations of the time, some of the stories really surprised me in that they covered several themes that would be relevant to today (but must have mystified 1970s audiences).

The series was made as a "childrens programme" and shown around 4.45pm during weekdays after kids had got home from school, yet there are some stories that were surprisingly more "adult" than I thought. Secret government departments allowed to experiment on children, one of the youngsters being abused by one of his parents .... some of these themes must have left kids like myself a little confused, but it was always the nifty ability of the characters to teleport themselves out of trouble and the producers' knack in creating neat little cliff-hanger endings at the end of each episode that always made us come back for more.

The clothes and fashions of the time may be hilarious, but I think those in their late 40's early 50s like myself will find themselves appreciating this series a little better than we were able to when we were younger.
