 Original series
The Tomorrow People operate out of a secret laboratory, The lab, built in an abandoned London Underground station. They watch for new Tomorrow People "breaking out" to help them through the process and sometimes deal with attention from extraterrestrial species. They deal with the "Galactic Federation" which oversees the wellfare of telepathic species throughout the galaxy. In addition to their psychic powers, they also use advanced technology such as the biological computer TIM, which is capable of original thought and can augment their psychic powers. TIM also helps the Tomorrow People to teleport long distances. Although they must be wearing a device installed into a belt or bracelet for this to work. Teleportation is also called jaunting in the show, presumably after the term used in the novel The Stars My Destination).
While they reveal their existence to some, they generally operate in secrecy for fear that normal people (whom they term "Saps", a pejorative abbreviation for Homo sapiens) will either fear or victimise them because of their special powers or try to exploit them for military purposes. In order to defend themselves they must use non-lethal weaponry such as "stun guns" or martial arts throws due to their inability to cause harm, referred to as the "prime barrier".

Glad to revisit my childhood. Wish they had included the commentary tracks from the BBC releases though.Published 17 months ago by Brian Smith
The tomorrow people is a 1960's style. Everything is peace related and child like. A child might be able to get through the show.Published on June 24, 2009 by W. Schilling
