“The Juganet is a circle. The circle is a machine. The machine is a cross-over point. The point is a paramagnetic intersection. That is where I must be. Not here…”
Eerie, unsettling and a benchmark production for children’s television in the 1970s, Sky was created by Doctor Who stalwarts Bob Baker and Dave Martin as one of the run of outstanding children’s dramas HTV produced in that decade. Filmed in such richly atmospheric locations as Avebury, Glastonbury Tor and Stonehenge, Sky is a mixture of ecological fable, science fantasy and good, old-fashioned peril.
Marc Harrison stars as Sky – an ethereal boy who materialises on an Earth that is as unprepared for him as he is for it. He soon realises that he’s been brought to the wrong time and must seek out the Juganet to return to his correct place in reality. With the help of tearaway Arby Venner, his sister June and friend Roy he must race against time as Nature rejects Sky and the Earth’s immune system creates the evil Goodchild, who is out to stop him at all costs…
One of the most memorable television series of the 1970s is available here, for the very first time in any video format. Episodes three and seven no longer exist in the archive in any format and the version included on this set is taken from an off-air VHS (supplied by classic TV organisation Kaleidoscope).
