Wonderful news for Tomorrow People fans - at last, there is a legitimate way of getting copies of the original series of The Tomorrow People. Revelations Films has released the series on DVD (Region 0, PAL).
The quality of the DVDs is good - certainly light years ahead of the bootleg multigenerational copies fans have been familiar with. The picture quality is as good as can be reasonably expected from the reasonably old recordings - in my opinion, they are extremely good. As well as containing the episodes, the DVDs also include some images from the series, brief information about the characters (one noticeable flaw is that early DVDs carry a picture of Mike when referring to Stephen - while regrettable, this is overall a fairly minor issue), and about the actors. There is a audio commentary track on each DVD which gives interesting insights into many aspect of the series from the perspective of actors like Nicholas Young (John), Peter Vaughan Clarke (Stephen) and Philip Gilbert (TIM). In my opinion, these are the gem of the DVD release - these commentaries are fascinating from the perspective of a fan of The Tomorrow People and often highly amusing.
I strongly recommend these DVDs to any fan of the 1970s series of The Tomorrow People. Any video or DVD release is something many of us have been waiting for for years, and with the Revelations Film product, we do get a bit more than just the basics.
