Editorial Reviews

United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 2.4 DVD: it WILL NOT play on standard US DVD player. You need multi-region PAL/NTSC DVD player to view it in USA/Canada: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), English ( Dolby Digital Stereo ), English ( Subtitles ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Booklet, Box Set, Documentary, Interactive Menu, Multi-DVD Set, Photo Gallery, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: The year is 2089. An alien race stalks the land in towering machines known as Tripods. They have taken over the earth and enslaved mankind with a mind-controlling device, ceremoniously implanted at the age of fourteen. Will Parker anxiously awaits this ritual but hears of a place where a group of people is organising a resistance movement. Together with his cousin they leave their village, hoping to join them. They have not left unnoticed however, and the giant alien machines are in pursuit. Based on the novels by John Christopher, The Tripods was one of the most expensive productions ever undertaken by the BBC, using a huge cast and many new special effects. Originally aired in the Saturday afternoon slot previously occupied by Doctor Who, The Tripods is another classic sci-fi serial from the BBC. Includes the whole of series 1 and 2. ...The Tripods - Series 1 & 2 - 4-DVD Set ( The Tripods - Series One & Two )

You will need to purchase a Region Free DVD Player which I did by purchasing a Toshiba and it play wonderfully and the picture is crystal clear.

I viewed this series on our local educational tv station. Overall it was quiet good. The series of books were near the top of my list as a child. I recently reread the books as an adult and still found them to be quiet good. I will probably buy this series if the price drops. As for Keely, you can watch this movie on your computer, I buy lots of region 2 movies and either watch them on my pc or rip and reburn them region free using free internet software ( dvd decrypter, shrink , rip it for me ). I would hope to see a big budget remake of these movies some day. If you are a young sci fi fan ( or just love good sci fi) this is one of the best series of books about alien invasion and rule that you will find (The White Mountions, City of gold and lead, Pool of Fire.)It is also a great coming of age and just plain adventure and survival story. I've also read The coming of the tripods novel,its nice to have to compleate the set but seems hastefully written and fails to capture the vibe and feel of the other three John Christopher books. I believe it to have been written after the first three in responce to fans. Also region free dvd players are available on amazon for a resonable price.

I just purchased this set for only $31.00 U.S. upon Amazon.co.uk.
Why these sellers are asking so much for a readily available title
sure mystifies me. This is the best BBC series, in my opinion.

The Tripods is a BBC TV Series that came out in 1984 (Series 1 of 13 episodes) and 1985 (Series 2 of 12 episodes) based on the John Christopher Trilogy and to me it still holds up very well. There is none of the blood & gore like you see today, no sexual innuendo or worse that is so prevalent today, but just good clean fun entertainment for the entire family. For those who do not know the BBC only filmed the first and second book canceling the series before they could film the third and final book. But fear not as there is a booklet included with the DVD giving a synopsis of the third book by John Christopher and also included is the synopsis of the 13 episode scripted but un-filmed series as they had gone so far as to scout locations for Series 3 before the show was officially cancelled but not before they wrote scripts for every episode of the 13 episode Series 3. You get an overview and the BBC was going to be faithful with the book ending which shows that John Christopher who wrote the trilogy (now 4 books as he wrote one 20 years after the first 3 called "When The Tripods Came") knew human nature and I will not spoil this for you but let you discover the ending for yourself.

Now to watch the series you will need a Region Free DVD player as this is region 2 & 4 and will not play on United State Region 1 DVD players or your computer despite what some people say. Today's computers and mine will only allow you to switch regions 5 time and once the counter reaches 0 you are stuck on that region even if you wipe your computer and reinstall the operating system. It must be a security feature today as years ago I was able to watch on my computer then with no problem.
