The Time Machine - broadcasted on BBC on Tuesday 25th January 1949
5 September 2018 | by andy-20656-62037See all my reviews

It is doubtful whether anyone who was born after 1949 could lay claim to having watched this version of the H.G. Wells thought provoking novel, "The Time Machine".

However, it would be nice to see how this much appraised production was made, especially when it is believed to have been made so close to the original novel.

As well as having read the original novel twice, I have only seen two versions of this, none which are anything like the book, so a remake of this television play, using the only available techniques that were about in 1949, would be interesting to watch.
