Three teenagers help an alien search the West Country's mystic landmarks for a way home.
Written by Bob Baker and Dave Martin, creators of K9, Sky is probably the hippiest children's science ficton ever. Sky (Marc Harrison) is a space traveller who inadvertently lands on Earth. His alien presence awakens opposing manifestations of nature such as freak winds, moving trees and a sinister, black-clad Earth-avatar called Goodchild.
Sky's only chance to return home lies in locating a gateway he terms The Juganet. He's aided in this by three teenagers, Arby, Jane and Roy, who take him to likely candidates such as Glastonbury Tor and Stonehenge.
Seven episodes in length, this deeply mystical series is sometimes confusing and slow. But good performances and impressive effects, such as the then-novel Chromakey or green screen, created striking moments that linger in viewers' memories still.
