Are you on the verge of breaking out?
But only for a limited time. I have uploaded an MPEG of the original series
opening credits from The Revenge of Jedikiah, part 1: Curse of the
Mummy's Tomb, but it will only be accessible for the next month or
so, as my html quota will be massively dropping when I finish my studies at
McGill University in early May.

New episodes of The Tomorrow People are currently airing in the
United States on Nickelodeon
The Tomorrow People is a television program originally created
by Roger Price for Thames Television from 1973 to
1979 for the ITV, Independent Television, network in Britain. From it's
creation, Roger Damon Price went on to co-produce season 1 and produce
season 4 of the series, in association with Paul Bernard, title sequence and
main Designer, and Ruth Boswell, primary Budget Director. Price often
served as Director, and wrote or co-wrote with Brian Finch all but the
season 4 story, Into the Unknown, by Jon Watkins. The program
was later re-run in Canada, in the United States, by the newly formed Nickelodeon
cable network, and in over 50 other countries at its height.
In November 1992, almost two decade since the first episode of the original
Tomorrow People series were shown, Tetra Films, a
production company, in association with Thames
Television and Nickelodeon,
decided to produce an all-new series of Tomorrow People under the auspices
of Roger Price. Many aspects of the program were changed between the two
series, and it is as yet difficult to reconcile the two series. The new
series is currently in its third season of 10
episodes with Roger Price replacing Alan
Horrox, now Producer, as Executive Producer and Lee Pressman and Grant
Cathro serving as head writers.
The Tomorrow People are the next step in human evolution. They possess
advanced ESP through the three T's: Telepathy, or mind talk,
Teleportation, or Jaunting, and Telekinesis,
or the ability to move objects with the mind. In the original series,
telekinesis was much more prominent than it is in the current one, but where
as in the new series, jaunting, or spontaneous transmission of the body
through space, is trivial to the new Tomorrow People, the old TP required
either belts or wristbands in order to increase their range and ability.
Another difference between the two series is the location of the Tomorrow
People base. In the old series, it was an abandoned underground [subway]
station, or in later episodes, a post-modern lounge (the original
underground set had been destroyed in a fire -- a common problem for British
Sci Fi --
between season 5 and the first season 6 episode, The Lost
Gods.), with a talking computer named Tim, where as in the new
series, it is a mysterious crashed space ship that only moans occasionally.
The Tomorrow People FAQ, compiled by
Tomorrow People International president TC Kirkham in an invaluable source
of information. It was last modified January 1995.
The Tomorrow People International is the only known organized
Tomorrow People fan club* outside of the UK. It is run by
TC Kirkham, UNBN32A@prodigy.com,
an avid Tomorrow People fan and author. I am a member of this club, and
have found it to be a valuable source of information and conversation. The
great thing about TPI is its un-assuming nature: everyone is equal in the
eyes of TPI, no matter your interests or opinions, so long as you show no
malicious intent. We are all united under the common love for the Tomorrow
People, and that is enough. (That and the fact that we are all in constant
) For more
