Space School

Tagged: TV

UK tv serial (1956). Produced by Kevin Sheldon. Written by Gordon Ford. Cast includes David Drummond, Matthew Lane, Donald McCorkindale, John Stuart and Julie Webb. Four 25-minute episodes. Black and white.

The producer of this Children's SF serial was also behind such earlier British sf serials as The Lost Planet (1954). In Space School, a group of children live in an artificial satellite while their father spends his time surveying the moons of Mars for possible landing sites. The model work – Space Station and Rocket ships – by John Ryan was quite effective considering the small budget. [JB]
