Children's TV favourite Timeslip – The Complete Series on DVD in June
16 June 2016
Groundbreaking ATV children's drama Timeslip – The Complete Series will be released in the UK as part of a Limited Edition set featuring exclusive packaging, all 26 episodes on DVD and a brand new ‘making of’ book by TV historian Andrew Pixley, whilst stocks last.
Well remembered to this day as a benchmark of 1970s telefantasy, this set contains all episodes in their original, as-transmitted, full screen aspect ratios, alongside a wealth of special features.
Devised by Ruth Boswell – who would go on to produce both The Tomorrow People and Shadows – Timeslip blends hard science and fantasy in its tale of two teenagers who discover the existence of a 'time barrier' enabling them to travel to different periods and locations – from World War Two to chilling visions of the future.
Three children have vanished from the tiny Midlands village of St Oswald. First to disappear is local girl Sarah, then Simon Randall and Liz Skinner, who are on holiday with Liz’s parents. Only Commander Traynor, an apparent stranger to the area, can offer some idea of where they are – and that idea is so incredible and horrifying that the Skinners cannot believe it...
Timeslip – The Complete Series will be released as a Limited Edition DVD set on 27th June 2016 by Network Releasing at the RRP of £39.99.
