Details

Writer Nigel Kneale's 1950s Quatermass trilogy set an early benchmark for TV science fiction. Despite being played by different actors in each series the character Professor Quatermass became one of television's first heroes and the serials themselves earned a place in small-screen history

The Quatermass Experiment

Reginald Tate plays Professor Bernard Quatermass, head of the British Rocket Group, an experimental research body. Awaiting the return of the first manned flight into space, Quatermass sees the rocket crash miles off course with two of its three-man crew having disappeared.

Originally broadcast: 18/7/53, 25/7/53. Only the first two episodes exist. Scripts for the remaining four episodes are included as a Special Feature.


Quatermass II

Mysterious showers of meteorites lead Professor Quatermass on a trail to a factory in a deserted village. What awaits him is a worldwide alien conspiracy that threatens to take over the planet and turn its human population into zombies...

Originally broadcast: 22/10/55 - 26/11/55


Quatermass and the Pit
