From the Vault – Children: Under The Mountain -The Alien World Below

  • Friday 1 Jun

G Classic sci-fi TV series Under the Mountain follows the adventures of redheaded twins with psychic powers - Rachel and Theo - as they battle the alien Wilberforces. In this excerpt from the fourth episode, the twins venture into the aliens' submarine lair for the first time. The lair's uterine production design, the NZSO score, and still-creepy transmogrifying SFX contributed to the slimy imprint the series left on a generation of NZ kids, haunted by the giant slugs slithering underneath Auckland's volcanoes. Top marks for a lovely example of a classic Kiwi accent here too!
