Doomwatch

Doomwatch is one of the great, lost TV programmes, a classic slice of science fiction (with the emphasis as much on science as the fiction), a stunningly prescient homegrown programme that followed hot on the heels of Doctor Who. Famed for its look at issues facing us long before anyone else, not least technological developments, the threats they pose and fears over what was happening to the environment, it also set the template for sci-fi TV programmes for years to come - with the series spinning off into the feature film world.

And now, for the first time on Blu-ray and in a newly restored DVD version, the feature length outing for sci-fi thriller Doomwatch arrives on 20 June 2016 courtesy of Screenbound.
