Storyline

Dr. Daniel Westin was a scientist working with a government thinktank known as the KLAE Corporation who was rendered invisible by a formula concocted by himself that was supposed to be used for matter transformation. Before he can return to normal, Westin discovers the federal government has plans to use his invisibility formula for warlike purposes, so he destroys the only formula. Unfortunately he has no way to become visible again, so, wearing a very realistic face mask and hands, he becomes an agent for KLAE, fighting crime and battling saboteurs, while simultaneously working in KLAE's laboratory with wife Kate to rediscover his formula. Walter Carlson was their sympathetic boss at KLAE. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

Trivia

Due to a tight filming schedule many of the special effects scenes of where Dr Westin would undress on camera by removing or putting on his 'synthetic skin' adornments were actually done live on set. A camera would be set up and locked off in a studio where the scene was supposedly taking place whilst David McCallum would be filmed in the opposite corner of the same studio wearing a blue body suit against a blue background watching the action live and interacting appropriately with the rest of the actors on the other set. The camera crew superimposed him in real time onto the live other scene using the chroma key technique (similar to how weather forecasters work when standing in front of a blue/green screen whilst the data appears behind them. This not only saved a considerable amount of time in post production but also saved money. However the downside was that as the two images were filmed and recorded live then there were limited options for the editing crews to use and sometimes the quality of the merged video images appeared a bit fake (for example skin tones often did not look right) and it was impossible to correct due to the technical limitations of electronic television camera & videotape technology of the time.

OH boy does this take me back!!! I was ten years old when this was shown in England. I was very keen on science fiction at the time. So re-runs of TIME TUNNEL, THE TOMORROW PEOPLE and THE INVISIBLE MAN were truly compulsive viewing! Of course, everything about it screams the 1970's. From the fashions to the scientific wishful thinking of the age. But the cast do a pretty good job with the story lines despite the lack of depth. The sets and scenes are pretty good as is the accompanying music. Not something you can say of many other television series of the time. The only question for me was why did they not make more of them? For those interested. Recently found it on Amazon. Four discs from NBC Universal. Unfortunately, only available in the U.S disc format.
