Storyline

Cloud Burst tells the story of Tim and Jenny Barber. When they lose their model aeroplane, they meet Ram Pandit, a kindly scientist working on a rainmaking machine to help the people of his native India. Unfortunately, Ram's evil twin Ravi (played by the same actor - Renu Setna) wants it himself and steals it. Tim and Jenny save the day, but Ram discovers a spy in his camp. Richard Carpenter presented the studio bits, with Wordy (Mr Watchword, to give you his full name) appearing for the first time. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Renu Setna could not drive at the time of filming, so all scenes featuring Ravi in the black Mercedes were achieved by the film crew pushing the car in and out of shot. This explains also why all the scenes featuring the car driving on the road were done by other characters (such as Number Two and Dick Turner). See more »

I used to watch this too at junior school in Petersfield Hampshire around 1975. The odd thing is that from time to time I still think about it (I am now 40) The big question running through out the length of the series (no idea how many episodes 6??)was the identity of the person riding the motorcycle !'I've ask friends in the past about this series and they have no idea what I'm talking about and think its some kind of weird dream I've had. I've never understood to this day the educational benefit of this but thought at the time it was great but slightly scary. I seem to remember that there used to be a break of some sort in the middle of each episode. No idea why. Would love to see it again. Got hold of a short clip via the BBC cult website.
