Needed A Bit More Backstory
10 March 2014 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

It's interesting how uncommon time travel is in science fiction . Occasionally you get a film like BACK TO THE FUTURE using it in its central plot but ends becoming a mixed genre film where the time travel aspect is nothing more than a plot device in order to set up a romantic plot . The natural successor to HG Wells THE TIME MACHINE is obviously DOCTOR WHO but even that show usually ignores the time travel aspect and is only used as a tool in order to set up a different story every week . Off the top of my head only Day Of The Daleks from the classic show and Fathers Day from NuWho utilised the full potential of the concept of time travel

RECORD/PLAY is a further contribution to the theme of time travel but there's a lot wrong with it . The story involves a man travelling back through time in order to meet a woman in what looks like a classroom but he constantly finds himself back at the beginning of the story and the more he travels back to the past he finds a bigger obstacle waiting for him when he gets there . There's also a larger problem when he returns and that is the object he uses to get there looks as if its shelf life has come to an end . At least I think it does because there's not a lot of background to this story , the motives of the characters and perhaps most importantly where it's happening . The man is black , the female is Indian and a couple of other characters are obviously Slavonic . Let's hazard a guess and say it's the Balkans circa 1991 1992 . Why would an Indian female be in a classroom in 1992 ? Of course she might be an aid worker or something like that but this never explained . Perhaps somewhere along the line she could have had a line of dialogue added like " After all my years as an aid worker this has been my most satisfying assignment " Easy to do but it's slipped the production teams mind . There is also an unbelievable aspect and that's it's possible to fix a cassette tape . People of a certain age will remember this entertainment consumer product and will agree when I say once they're broken they stay broken and it's much easier to build a fully working time machine than what it is to mend a broken cassette tape
