THE TIME TUNNEL blu-ray


Known for his big budget '60s sci-fi spectacles, producer Irwin Allen brought his vision to TV for the 1966 series The Time Tunnel. The show starred James Darren and Robert Colbert as a pair of scientists who find themselves in a struggle to return to the present day after travelling through the 'time tunnel' they've spent a decade working on.

On November 5th, Koch Media will release a seven disc blu-ray set containing all 30 episodes, remastered in hi-def from the original negatives with a choice of original mono or new 5.1 soundtracks.

Bonus features include the original unaired pilots of both the '60s show and a cancelled 2002 reboot; the Time Travellers TV movie; cast interviews; Irwin Allen’s Behind-The-Scenes Home Movies; Promotional TV and radio spots; Visual effects and camera tests.

The Time Tunnel: The Complete Series can be pre-ordered on Amazon at amzn.to/2vv8CoV.


The official synopsis reads:

“The control of time is potentially the most valuable treasure that man will ever find.” Or so believe the scientists of Project Tic Toc.

Located beneath the Arizona desert, the ten-year project’s focus is the feasibility of time travel. But when the government reconsiders the project, the scientists have only 24 hours to prove their untested ‘Time Tunnel’ will actually work. Determined to save the project, Dr. Tony Newman and Dr. Doug Phillips go through the tunnel – and quickly find themselves catapulted from one historical event to another, barely escaping with their lives as their colleagues back in Arizona race to figure out a way to bring them back home.
