Time Tunnel...two scientists are lost in a maze of time.
Two scientists are lost in the swirling maze of past and future ages during the first experiment of America's greatest and most secret project The Time Tunnel. Tony Newman and Doug Phillips now tumble helplessly toward a new fantastic adventure somewhere along the infinite corridors of time.
Project Tic-Toc is a top secret U.S. government effort to build an experimental known as The Time Tunnel. When the costs of the project approach those of the entire U.S. space program, Senator Leroy Clark launches an investigation. The Senator feels that the tunnel has cost too much money for too little reward. He visits the project base and is given a tour. Once he reaches the central control room the Senator explains his complaints to the project heads. He wants the project closed down as the cost is way over budget and has not worked.
Time Tunnel scientist, young physicist Dr. Tony Newman is far from happy with the decision. He will prove that it does work, he returns later, turns the machine on and sends himself back in time. It works, Tony is back in time but he finds himself on the soon to sink Titanic on it's maiden voyage from London to New York!
After time the personel in the control room get a signal from Tony and can see him on the viewer. They realise he is on the Titanic. They can also see that he cannot escape before the sinking, and they cannot retrieve him. In an attempt to rescue his colleague and friend, scientist Dr. Doug Phillips enters the Time Tunnel. However Doug knows he may also be trapped in time!
Great series from Irwin Allen, his third in the 1960's after, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea and Lost in Space. Couldn't wait for next weeks episode. Are they still lost? Where will they be next week?
