Thread: 70's or 80's scifi series

  1. #1

    Default 70's or 80's scifi series

    Hi all, just caught a programme on cable which jogged my mind about a series I used to watch as a kid. I then went surfing for more info and found this great site. Not too sure on the name but the plot involved a young alien boy with special powers who ends up on earth and basically the has to avoid being traced by someone or something. The name SKY seems to keep popping into my head but I may have it confused with something else.
    Thanks in advance

    There was a 70's series called just SKY, the main character.

    That is so strange as I was just thinking about this series the other day. I recall watching this in school when I lived in England. Not sure why we would watch this in school exactly but I remember looking forward to it. Has anyone come up with the name yet?

    Here's soem information that I found on the net which confirms the show as "The Boy From Outer Space". The clincher for me was the fact that we also read after watching the show. Here's the quote from the net "
    BBC 10-part educational children's series tx. 1971. Intended as part of a teaching series for 1st and 2nd year Junior classes, who have difficulty learning to read. Tells an adventure story involving the arrival on Earth of strange people from Outer Space. Repeated in 1980 as part of the LOOK AND READ series (qv). "
