Storyline

Sequel to Play for Today: The Flipside of Dominick Hide (1980). Now a respected teacher of temporal observers, Dominick has not visited the past for several years. He is content with his lot, resigned to the idea that he will never again see Jane, the lover he left in 1980, or their son. Then his boss gives him a new mission: to find out what has become of one of Dominick's students, Pyrus Bonnington, who has gone missing in 1982. Pyrus, who idolises Dominick, is attempting to emulate his exploits in the past. Dominick's search reunites him with Jane who now lives with a musician (conveniently on a six-month stint in Brazil) and allows him to meet his son for the first time. Pyrus is attempting to rescue a foreign princess being held to ransom by terrorists, which might have a disastrous affect on future history if he succeeds. Matters become even more complicated when Dominick and Jane quarrel, and he decides to use his time machine to revisit the previous day, and try to repair the ... Written by Anonymous

Simply the best Sci-Fi
16 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Simply the best Sci-Fi ever shown on television, it is one of those rare pieces of work that demonstrate how a good storyline is more important than special effects, something that perhaps George Lucas could learn! I remember seeing the first screening on BBC TV in the 1970's and taping it on my "steam driven" VHS recorder. The life of the old recorded tape lasted just long enough for the DVD to arrive! The music is still as good as ever and worth a CD on its own. However, the Herne Bay (beside the silvery sea) is not the Herne Bay I live near and it's certainly not "silvery"! Another good example of how a good story outweighs special effects is the John Carpenter's film "Dark Star".
