The Blue And The Green – Part 1: An Apple For The Teacher

Tomorrow PeopleWith Carol and Kenny having left to live on other worlds, John and Stephen keep their eyes open for other Tomorrow People, perhaps even those who have yet to experience their “breaking out”. One of Stephen’s classmates gets their attention by drawing an accurate artistic representation of another planet, a world about which a normal human would know nothing. But more alarmingly, the weather depicted in the picture changes, affecting the mood of everyone in the class. This happens much to the alarm of Elizabeth, a new student teacher, who admits privately to Stephen that she can overhear his telepathic communication with John and TIM.

The Blue And The Green – Part 2: A Changing Picture

Tomorrow PeopleJohn and Stephen, having startled Elizabeth into jaunting under her own power, must jaunt into hyperspace to retrieve her. Elizabeth has very little time to come to terms with the realization of her special powers before another crisis looms: the same student behind the otherworldly painting begins handing blue and green badges out to his classmates…and the moment the weather changes in his picture, the students square off against each other on the basis of the color of their badges.

The Blue And The Green – Part 3: The Trojan Horse

Tomorrow PeopleStephen and John scare a group of hostile youths away from Elizabeth by jaunting in out of thin air. The violence among wearers of blue and green badges is growing around the world. John purchases a painting similar to Robert’s from a shop window, only to discover that the owner of the shop is John’s grandfather, though TIM is unable to find any family records pertaining to Robert. TIM also warns against bringing the painting into the Tomorrow People’s home base, but grudgingly agrees to neutrino scan it…until it burns itself to ash in self-defense.

The Blue And The Green – Part 4: Cuckoo In The Nest

Tomorrow PeopleJohn has been captured by Robert and is kept in a cell in the basement of the shop belonging to Robert’s “grandfather”. Something there prevents John from using his powers to jaunt to safety. Attempts are made by Stephen and by Chris, Ginge’s younger brother, to break John out of his cell, but none of them are successful. As Chris isn’t one of the Tomorrow People, he speeds across London in an old jeep rather than jaunting, and this has attracted unwelcome police attention, but Chris uses this to bring the police to the shop to free John…but there’s no trace of him.

The Blue And The Green – Part 5: The Swarming Season

Tomorrow PeopleGiving the police the slip, Chris returns to the Tomorrow People’s hideout to tell Stephen and Elizabeth that John has vanished without a trace. Violence on Earth reaches crisis proportions; bearers of blue and green badges are splitting off into violent tribes. War seems inevitable. Aboard a hidden spaceship, John learns from Robert that the badges and the pictures are all part of a plan to harvest the psychic energy of the human race as it goes mad to help incubate the next generation of Robert’s people. Is there a way for these aliens and the people of Earth to live, or must one species die off?

Notes: The model of the American space station is a model of Skylab, which was launched in 1973 and occupied by three crews, the third of which was still aboard while this episode was in production, but had departed shortly before Tomorrow Peoplebroadcast. The idea of warring factions denoted by blue and green accessories would be “borrowed” some 20 years later by an episode of Babylon 5.

A Rift In Time – Part 1: Vase Of Mystery

Tomorrow PeopleJohn and Stephen each have dreams about Peter, the boy from the future that they encountered months ago, returning to ask for help and bearing an antique vase of some sort. Somewhat unhelpfully, TIM can’t obtain any more information about the vase in question, leaving Stephen and John to go through a catalogue of photos, one by one, until they find one resembling the vase Peter held in their dreams…but the search itself may draw unwanted attention to the Tomorrow People.

The Doomsday Men – Part 1: Dressed To Kill

Tomorrow PeopleJohn sends Stephen undercover at a Scottish boarding school in an attempt to find out about a secret society of warmongers known only as the Doomsday Men. The society’s founder, General McLelland, runs the school, while his grandson Douglas runs roughshod over new students – including Stephen. Stephen survives enough new-boy hazing to impress Douglas, who invites him to join the Doomsday Men…the initiation rituals for whom are far more dangerous.

The Doomsday Men – Part 2: The Burning Sword

Tomorrow PeopleHigh in orbit above Earth, the Damocles space station acts as a deterrent to warfare on Earth. Crewed by the United Nations, Damocles’ nuclear missiles are meant to provide any warmongers on Earth with a good reason to stop fighting. But the Doomsday Men have a plan to take over Damocles, and with it, the entire world.

Notes: Much of the last third of the episode is tracked with Gustav Holst’s “Mars, The Bringer Of War” from The Planets suite. The special effects model sequences are unusually ahead of their time in one respect: where most American contemporaries such as The Six Million Dollar Man or the TV movie Earth II kept using footage or model sequences of Apollo spacecraft, The Tomorrow Men uses a model of an early design of the Space Shuttle.

Tomorrow PeopleWhen he regains consciousness, Stephen reports Douglas’ kidnapping both to John and Elizabeth, and to the headmaster of the school…who seems strangely unconcerned, as if he doesn’t want to know the details. With fellow student Paul, Stephen tracks the headmaster to a cabin in the woods where Douglas is being “held”, though not against his will. If the world is to be spared nuclear annihilation, Stephen must help Douglas realize the error of his grandfather’s warlike ways.
