2nd best titles EVER!

a_contributor writes about The Tomorrow People

Roger Damon Price

1973

TV: The Tomorrow People.

Encapsulated. Would you recommend this? why?

I can't really recommend the stories as a whole because I don't actually recall them. I'm reliably informed by those in the know that they were generally pretty dire.

Time and Space: When and where I first encountered it

I was about 3-4 years old when I was first sat in front of those mentally scarring titles...

Recollection and revelations

The design of the opening titles was simply superb. The monochrome lines, the embryo, the close ups of eyeballs, THAT stop-motion fist zooming in, the larva lamp bubbles and the fantastically WHO-ish theme tune has left a mark on me to this day. A design classic.

Click Alert the moderator to this recollection if you see something on this page that breaks the house rules.
