THE TIME TUNNEL 50TH ANNIVERSARY
Happy 50th Birthday to The Time Tunnel and to all who have travelled through time with us this past 50 years. On Friday 9th September 2016, The Time Tunnel celebrates the 50th Anniversary of its first broadcast in the US on Friday 9th September 1966. Above are the original US TV Guide clippings for the premiere. Time hasn't weakened the popularity of this series as evidenced by the continued interest amongst fans, collectors, authors, and time travellers! The influence of The Time Tunnel is far reaching as many night clubs, events, movies and tv shows take inspiration from the theme and design of the Time Tunnel for their stories, logos and backdrops. In the UK, The Time Tunnel first aired on the BBC on 9th July 1968, and only had a partial run before being shown in a few ITV regions in the 1970s and then experienced a rebirth over 22 years later on late night television (ITV).
