The series was based upon the Tripods trilogy of children's books: "The White Mountains" (1967), "The City of Gold and Lead" (1967), and "The Pool of Fire" (1968), by John Christopher. Only two of intended three seasons have been produced - the events of the third novel are therefor missing in this adaptation. See more »
I was only 3 years old when the original BBC "the tripods" came out, and i have had recurring memories of it for last 20+ years,most of which i thought were just childhood dreams of tripods with lasers, I recall sitting in front of the TV captivated by it but have never been to sure if it was actually a real series.....I have often asked people if they remember the series, most people thought i was just confusing "War of the Worlds"....to be honest i wasn't sure if it was a recurring dream i had when i was a kid or not, for it was so vivid..Thats how amazing it was at the time, that it burnt itself into your psyche, and there are probably a lot of youngsters from the 80's that were in a way "capped" Now i know that the series did exist and It wasn't just my imagination.I'm thrilled.. I'm so excited about the prospect of a remake....i hope they do it justice.. Does anybody know if they are underway with filming?? who the actors are etc???, Id be interested to know.. peace
