When the Earth is threatened by a burning Van Allen Radiation Belt, U.S. Navy Admiral Harriman Nelson plans to shoot a nuclear missile at the Belt, using his experimental atomic submarine, the Seaview.
The Spindrift, a sub-oribital spaceship on a flight from Los Angeles to London, became lost when it passed through a strange cloud in the ship's orbit around Earth. It landed on an alternate Earth-type planet, where the inhabitants were roughly twelve times the size of the Spindrift's passengers. Our heroes include the ship's captain (Steve Burton), co-pilot (Dan) and stewardess (Betty); an arrogant engineer (Mark); a sexy jet-setter (Valerie); a young boy (Barry) and his dog Chipper; and a mysterious rogue known as Commander Fitzhugh. Together they battle the planet's totalitarian government, try to avoid capture, and attempt to repair the Spindrift so they can get back home.Written by

Even though certain cities are named, the name of the giants' planet is never mentioned. See more »
Throughout the series, the Little People and the Giants would not have it so easy to communicate it to each other. The Little People's vocal cords, in relation to the amount of oxygen in their lungs, would not produce sound waves long enough for the giants to hear - even if they yelled. By the same token, the giants, with much larger vocal cords coupled with large volumes of oxygen from their lungs, would produce sound waves deafening to the Little People - even at a whisper.

Even though it lasted only two seasons and 51 episodes Land of the Giants is in my opinion the best sci fi series ever produced. Once a week you were with seven stranded castaways...but not on any island...on a hositle giant earth-like planet. Gary Conway and Deanna Lund are especially great in the roles of Steve and Valerie.
