Children’s scifi drama series. Two teenagers, Liz Skinner and Simon Randall discover a “time barrier” which leads to them having adventures if different time zones. The duo found themselves both in the near future (1990) and the past (their first time through the barrier finds them in 1940.
Timeslip is one of the most fondly remembered series of all from the golden age of children’s TV and tackled some pretty big science ideas over the course of its episodes, luckily it had one of the UK’s top science experts Geoffrey Hoyle as it’s scientific advisor.
A technicians strike at the time of filming meant that parts 2-5 of Year of the Burn Up were made in black and white and sadly these days the whole series only remains in black and white. However at least they do still survive unlike so many other shows of the era.
