I loved this film as a kid and was amazed to find it on DVD recently as it is the kind of film that you expect to be gathering dust in the film vaults of some dusty British studio, but no, it has been released for all to enjoy on DVD in England. The plot is simple enough, an inventor (played by Pat "Dr Who" Troughton) invents a time machine but can never get it to work right. Enter two kids who happen to discover his hiding place and end up going through time while encountering a bullying teacher, and, while going further back in time, even the teacher's ancestors. This is a classic kids film, the sort mom and dad can leave any child with and know that he or she is going to be entertained and not need ten years of therapy. So track it down, it is worth a watch, and if you get the DVD, you also have Go Kart Go, an early Dennis Waterman film with rival Go-Kart teams!
