The Tomorrow People
Yes, I would recommend this because it teaches one to think outside of the box and to think globally, instead of locally.
It was 1980 or so, and I was at my Grandma's house. It came on Nicklodeon (at that time, it was Pinwheel). I was a teenager, and eagerly awaited each and every episode. I got in on the very beginning of the showing in the US.
I have always felt that I was born in the wrong country. This show only proved it. Everything about The Tomorrow People was British with very good drama and teachings. American Children television was just simply silly and pointless. It taught me nothing. The Tomorrow People taught me to care for others. It taught me to think outside of the box. How has this impacted Britain vs. America? Unless you were one of the fortunate few who could afford cable, you missed this show in the USA. Thus, it has had little impact here. Britains I have encountered appear to have a more global view of the world. Some Americans, I have encountered, tend to have a more narrowly focused view of the world. I believe that The Tomorrow People helped encourage Britains to have a broader view.
Dr. Who, another British program, encouraged my mind to think. Not to bash US Telly, but I really do prefer British telly any day of the week, because the humour and drama is much better thought out and intelligent.
