Default The Tomorrow People & other vintage sci-fi shows

The Tomorrow People was an early 1970s British tv show. Look at the visuals on the intro. It's a truther's dream come true/worst nightmare.



'All incarnations of the show concerned the emergence of the next stage of human evolution (Homo novis) known colloquially as Tomorrow People. Born to human parents, an apparently normal child might at some point between childhood and late adolescence experience a process called "breaking out" and develop special paranormal abilities. These abilities include psionic powers such as telepathy, telekinesis, and teleportation. However, their psychological make-up prevents them from intentionally killing others.'

'The original series was produced by Thames Television for ITV. The Tomorrow People operate out of a secret base, The lab, built in an abandoned London Underground station. The lab was revamped at the beginning of Series 6. The team watches for new Tomorrow People "breaking out" to help them through the process and sometimes deal with attention from extraterrestrial species as well as facing more earthbound dangers. They also have connections with the "Galactic Federation" which oversees the welfare of telepathic species throughout the galaxy. In addition to their psychic powers, they use advanced technology such as the biological (called in the series "biotronic") computer TIM, which is capable of original thought, telepathy, and can augment their psychic powers. TIM also helps the Tomorrow People to teleport long distances, although they must be wearing a device installed into a belt or bracelet for this to work. Teleportation is referred to as jaunting in the programme. The team used jaunting belts up to the end of Series 5, after which they used much smaller wristbands.' (Wiki)

I liked it, but if I'm honest it went way over my head. Even though I did like Dr Who.

It really should have been on past the watershed. Then again, I'd say the same about Captain Pugwash.

I remember one episode that freaked me out back in the day.
An organisation was selling fashion 'bubble suits' to teenagers and after they had put them on they couldn't get them off again. They all ended up screaming in turmoil.

Scary stuff. Definitely got our imaginations going at a young age.

The episode that creeped me out ended with a woman aging rapidly,morphing into a hag like creature. I recall there was really sinister music accompanying this scene.

I remember having to top and tail in my yoinger brothers bunk bed I was that frightened. Seems silly now.

Interesting Bowie Factoid...whilst having his dinner in the Thames TV canteen following a TV appearance in the 1970's, the spikey orange haired Bowie congratulated the director of this show claiming that he was a fan of The Tomorrow People ,tying in nicely with his notion of Homo superior...well he would have, wouldn't he ?

I used to like Children of the Stones that was a make-you-think tale of paranormalia. With Iain Cuthbertson (Adam Faith's boss in "Budgie") as master of ceremonies.

One of the most chilling and effective BBC TV plays I've ever seen is one called Pinder's Venn about small country village where ritual satanic worship and child mutilation via time loop distortion went on. The lead was Spencer Banks, the lad who played in Timeslip (another favourite).

Today, you can't find Pinder's Venn anywhere...

Also, another one which was a no-easy-answers yarn called "The Changes" about the world going tits up all down to powers emitted by Stones. BBC used to announce a viewer warning before each episode that it was for more 'mature ' children only. A Sort of "The Prisoner" for kids.

Sorry ...thrice edited this post now.

Never saw it, it would of been on before i would of started watching tv.

I would think every big country do all sorts of experiments, boosting certain parts of there population.

What ever i stumbled across at school in 1992, shows the uk gov target kids at school with techs and weapons. So i am very sure things go on, and i would be sure all big countries have some sort of mind control programme targeting kids at school, and assessing them.

So although i have never seen that show, i would guess its about similar things they did to me, and probably many others. One day i may watch it.

There are things about paranormal stuff, that the majority have no idea on, and are better being ignorant about. You can be sure the ptb have ways to boost there kids abilities, and if you did that to your kids, it would be abuse.

So alot of stuff most people are better of not knowing about.

But you can be sure what they targeted me at school with in 1992 in london, was probably done, to many. I just knew about it, while most probably never understood they were being targeted.

I would suggest you only get a job in whitehall, if you have more skills then most of the public. Like how you only get places in uk police, if you get anywhere in the masons in uk.

There is something going on in society, where this stuff exists, and gov use it for there benefit. Ie they find people with skills, and will use them against there will, or with there will.

Most are better of not knowing about it.

I am just glad i found out about mind control at school, targeting me in 1992 in london. I am also sure its probably done to many, but most had no idea they were being targeted.

I am sure all big countries use mind control techs, to find those whom one day may work for there gov jobs while at school.

Like i said, i am pretty sure, you only get a job in whitehall(uk gov), if you have skills, most do not.

One day i will watch that programme, but it was just before my time of watching kids shows on tv, so i missed out on it. But you can be sure, from what i gather from it, that something does go on in society in big countries. Like i said, gov want to find out whom to get to work for them as adults.

So something like that programme does exist, and is part of the mind control techs programme.

Children of the stones was classic I need to buy the Tomorrow People on dvd did they make a remake?
I love the 70s series Survivor's but I never got to see the end, the first season was the best, you can buy some classic vintage tv DVDs from the company Network some of the stuff from the 70s and early 80s is great, I don't watch the new Doctor Who only the old Who, Pertwee, Baker, Troughton, Hartnell .

Children of the Stones... THAT was worth watching -freddie jones and Blake himself Gareth Thomas!!

(I vaguely remember a show around this era about kids and a post-'apocalyptic' world whereby the electric grid, cabling and pylons were part of the problem, and the band of hers had to stop them from being used as transmitters / transmissions lines...???)

I quite liked the Tomorrow People, but was put off a bit in that one of the actors was Mike Holloway, the drummer in the media hyped ITV band Flintlock. That sort of trivia was important when I was kid. Lol.

I've never seen "The Tomorrow People" or "Children of Stones".
However on vintage sci-fi, I grew up watching "Battlestar Galactica," "Dr Who" (with Tom Baker), "Space 1999", "Buck Rogers," "Sapphire and Steel", "The Fantastic Journey," and "V". As for my favourite childhood sci fi TV shows its "Ulysses 31".

I was really intrigued by this so looked at Spencer Bank's IMDB page. It was actually called 'Penda's Fen' and was a 1974 Play for Today. Anyway, I had a look on youtube & in a spooky coincidence someone has actually uploaded it today!

It's not great quality, the vid only fills part of the screen - but here it is.


As for The Tomorrow People - I absolutely loved it as a kid & to this day wish I could 'jaunt'.

Thanks for the contributions. If we're talking vintage sci-fi, then this must be included.
If you haven't seen it and you're into this kind of thing, I guarantee you'll be intrigued. I started a thread on it in 2009:

I viewed it first as a great sci-fi, a darker version of Star Trek but it took on other meanings second time 'round, after I'd read Icke's work.

Here's the intro:

The episode 'The Ivy Curtain' is the pick of the lot (42 episodes were shown originally between 1967 and 1969).

Another show I always had to watch. The presence of Luana Jumley also helped.
