THE TIME TUNNEL (ABC 1966-67) is certainly one of the late Irwin Allen's better SF tv series produced in the 1960s and this long anticipated two volume DVD collection promises to be something truly outstanding for the show's devout fan following.

It has been promised (by informed insiders) that the source elements utilized for these disc pressings will be taken from the original 35mm print masters newly restored and digitally remastered in high definition with each episode presented in its entirety along with the original cliffhanger endings complete and intact. Probably in anticipation of ultimately issuing this valuable tv property (once again) in HD somewhere later down the line.

The volume one 4-disc box set (due out on January 24th, 2006) will consist of the first 15 episodes presented in their original ABC Television Network primetime broadcast order along with the 55 minute production pilot of "Rendezvous with Yesterday" (09/09/1966).

Many of the show's best efforts can be found here including "Rendezvous with Yesterday" (in two versions), "One Way to the Moon" (16/09/1966), "End of the World" (23/09/1966), "The Day the Sky Fell In" (30/09/1966), "The Last Patrol" (07/10/1966), "Revenge of the Gods" (21/10/1966) and "Massacre" (28/10/1966).

THE TIME TUNNEL is one SF tv series that certainly got off to a very strong start indeed!

The series' single season is marked by the early tv appearances of such distinguished performers as Carroll O'Connor, Ellen Burstyn, Tom Skerritt, Susan Hampshire, Jim Davis, Susan Flannery and even Robert Duvall many of whom would shortly achieve greater celebrity becoming Hollywood legends in the ensuing years to follow.

I remember when the series premiered on September 9th, 1966. The day before, Star Trek premiered on NBC with The Man Trap. For a 10 year old kid in Pittsburgh, that was interesting, but the Time Tunnel premiere was more impressive. I remember reading in the Post Gazette that the original pilot cost over 1.7 million (remember, that was in 1966 dollars). My grandparents arrived from California just before the broadcast began right after the Green Hornet.

We had just gotten an RCA color TV the Wednesday before, and Star Trek sure made watching color TV fun, but the Time Tunnel pilot was totally impressive. The matte shots in the early part of the pilot, "Rendevous With Yesterday" were AWFULLY impressive on a 25 inch RCA color TV screen. The idea and concept of the pilot were just awesome. I still remember Grandpa and Grandma talking about the Titanic as if it was yesterday. (I regret not having a tape recorder to capture everything they said). After the third episode, End of the World, Grandpa talked at legnth about what went on in 1910, the ACTUAL hysteria whipped up by newspapers because Earth orbit actually crossed over Halley's arc. Millions of people bought "comet pills" or potions, which were supposed to protect them from the effects of cyanide gas generated from the comet. Grandma swore that one of those tonics at that time eventually was relabeled GERITOL.

Years later, in 1985, I remember coming home and seeing Halley's. You could barely make it out. Grandma remembered in 1910, it covered a quarter of the sky then. I got grandma to run out and see it. She turned her head and said "Such a dissapointment, That TV Show was more fun". a bittersweet memory triggered by the inventive mind of Irwin Allen which brought happy memories to a 10 year old kid in Pittsburgh.

Format: DVD
For a kid in 1966 TV was a treasure trove of fun. "Star Trek", "Rat Patrol" and "The Time Tunnel" all debuted during the same year. Although "Star Trek" had the respectable pedigree with involvement from science fiction writers, "The Time Tunnel" had the feature film expertise of Irwin Allen ("Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea", "The Towering Inferno", "The Poseidon Adventure", The Swiss Family Robinson", "The Towering Inferno") and the might of 20th Century Fox behind it. While some of the episodes could be quite corny the initial batch of episodes for the series had a fun and adventurous quality. More of a fantasy series than a science fiction show, the premise was fairly simple. The U.S. government has been secretly investing in the next great step in science after the creation of the atomic bomb; sending a man back in time to observe what occurred in the past and preventing our enemies from altering the time line similar. It was a race so to speak for time-control of our past. When a senator (Gary Merril) threatens to cut the funding for the defense department project Project Tic Tock, Dr. Tony Newman (James Darren) uses the device to prove that it works. Newman ends up on the Titanic and must try and convince the captain to prevent the sinking of the ship so that Dr. Doug Phillips (Robert Colbert) Dr. Raymond Swain (John Zaremba) and Dr. Ann MacGregor (Lee Meriwether) can bring him back. Newman also has the chance to avert one of the worst disasters in sea faring history. Philips goes after Newman in hopes of bringing him back and both become unstuck in time (to borrow from Kurt Vonnegut) randomly drifting through the past and the future.Read more ›
